Australia - The Dead Heart (Sepia)
The Dead Heart depicts the spirit of the pioneers who traversed the centre of Australia via land and air, and thus pave the way for future generations.
Shown in the montage are a London to Fremantle map; mailman Tom Kruse; a team of Afghan cameleers; an early 20th cent. biplane; and ballet dancer Bryan Ashbridge who appears to be rejoicing in "Advance Australia Fare".
Images by Stephen Permezel (creator) include the Old Ghan railway line; a radio repeater dish; and the eye of a Central Australian Aboriginal elder representing thousands of years of knowledge.
