This chapter takes shape as a kind of unfolding and entangled dialectic, not between people, but between disciplinary perspectives on historical and contemporary nature/culture binaries. It addresses shifting Australian perceptions of land over time through an interdisciplinary approach to critically engaging the spheres of ecology, psychology and photography through a chronological assessment of Australia's changing national identity. These movements are loosely grouped in to modes of colonization, the birth of nationhood,early environmental-photography and political activism, and finally a posthumanist post-materiality conceived in terms of photography for environmental mutualism.
