Portraits and Diaries
Foreword by Robert Gardner. Text by Bob Connolly.
Published by Radius Books/Peabody Museum Press
Stephen Dupont (born 1967) is an Australian photographer who has produced hauntingly beautiful images of fragile cultures and marginalized peoples since beginning his photographic career in 1989. Piksa Nuigini records Dupontís journey through some of the most important cultural and historical zones in Papua New Guinea: the Highlands, Sepik, Bougainville and the capital city, Port Moresby. Through images and diary entries, Dupont captures the spirit of human life on one of the worldís last truly wild frontiers. This work was conducted with the support of the Robert Gardner Fellowship of Photography at Harvardís Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. The publication consists of two slipcased volumes: Piksa Nuigini: Portraits and Piksa Nuigini: Diaries. The former is a collection of portraits reproduced in luscious duotone; the latter a collection of the diaries, drawings, contact sheets and documentary photographs that Dupont produced as he created his work.
