Trent Parke 'Minutes to Midnight'

The result of a two-year road trip around his native Australia, Trent Parke presents an intense and darkly dream-like vision of this vast land.

Traveling 90,000 kilometers across Australia with his partner Narelle Autio, Trent Parke produced a body of work which he came to call Minutes to Midnight. A book was published and an exhibition was created that toured globally.

The work is both a document of a changing nation, uneasy with its identity and its place in the world, and a work of fiction which when combined suggests the build-up, aftermath and rebirth of an apocalyptic world.
