Essays by Ann Stephen, Ross Gibson and Nicholas Thomas explore how white Australia has come to understand and ‘see’ the ‘South Seas’ through photographs, postcards, publications and the imaginations of writers, missionaries, travellers and traders.

This is compelling reading for anyone interested in visual culture and colonial history. Published to coincide with the exhibition South Pacific Stories at the Powerhouse Museum September 1993 – September 1994.
