Polixeni Papapetrou in Conversation With Natalie King
Eyeline Publishing Limited
Polixeni Papapetrou flexes the camera’s hold on her subjects: Natalie King: Initially you trained as a lawyer and then became a practicing children, their friends and the Australian landscape. Whether embedded in rural settings, disguised by masks and costumes or embellished with accoutrements, she is a masterful narrator. These carefully arranged scenarios are tales without endings; stills from a lifelong inquiry into our relationship with each other, with ourselves and our context. Intimate and poignant, each vignette has a taut composition that tells stories of love and loss.
