Kurt Sorenson and Koji Makino will work on a collaborative photographic project exploring their duel interest in the historic narratives of Hill End. Makino has a specific interest in Chinese and other migrant workers of the gold rush era and their descendants. Sorensen, who returns to Hill End after a residency in 2011, will look at Australian born miners and their relationship to the Australian landscape. The project will employ traditional landscape and portrait photographic techniques such as black and white photography (Makino) and wet plate glass collodian photography (Sorensen).
