Summary
"The representation of Aborigines in the popular Australian magazine 'Walkabout' has attracted the attention of a small number of scholars. For the most part their analyses draw a distinction between the portrayals of primitive natives and those of the emergent modernising Australian nation. It is argued that Aborigines appear as debased, as noble savages, or as bearers of an idealised and imagined and traditional culture. These representational strategies are evident in both photographs and text in 'Walkabout'. Whilst not necessarily disagreeing with these critiques, more nuanced readings of Aboriginal photographic presentation in 'Walkabout' are possible. This article seeks to reveal the potential for a more diverse and complex understanding of the images appearing throughout the 1930s." [Authors abstract]
