Australian photographer, Trent Parke photographed the series “The Camera is God” on an Adelaide street corner last year. “The Camera is God” depicts various strangers passing by with a dark and ambiguous aesthetic. The grainy, high contrast images are taken at a speed that captures the movements of the anonymous subjects in a fleeting ephemeral motion. The photos also capture a brief outline of the strangers’ faces and expressions, while remaining highly ambiguous.

 “I’ve been influenced by all sorts of things,” Parke said in a 2007 interview. “Music videos have been great. There is this Icelandic group Sigur Rós – their music is just very sad and melodramatic. Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead and those sorts of bands and their cutting-edge film clips have influenced me. They have this kind of dark, dreamy quality and I suppose that was what I’m trying to evoke. But, to be honest, I don’t really realize all this when I am shooting because the stuff inside me and the stuff outside me kind of flows through me into the pictures. Most of the time I’m in another world.”

Later, a relative was flicking through the portraits, who has no idea about photography, and he said ‘So in a way the camera is playing God.' That was it. With personal camera phones and security cameras all over cities now, nothing goes unnoticed. The camera is all seeing

This Week In Photography Books: Trent Parke - A Photo Editor

by Jonathan Blaustein I used to have an Aussie friend named Pappy. We met when I was still impressionable, and were the best of mates for nearly 15 years. He looked like a pirate and drank like a Marine, so I did too. Having an Australian wingman is kind

One can only imagine the subtitle, “Trent Parke’s Family Album” is a truthful moniker. In which case, the many excellent photos within give us an inkling of what life is like at that time of year. The dude in the Borat suit in front of the open swimming pool reminds that Christmas comes in summer Down Under, and that’s enough to make your head spin. (As opposed the the bed spins. Which I’m sure were in evidence here too.)

“And it was there, while staring into that bright red bucket,” says Parke, referring to red buckets which act as the base of Christmas trees (slide 1), “vomiting every hour on the hour for fifteen hours straight, that I started to think how strange families, suburbia, life, vomit and in particular, Christmas really was.”

Photography is a generous, abundant medium and Parke is a voracious photographer. Keeping track of what he’s been up to since the publication of these two books can be a little difficult. He is amassing a vast quantity of pictures, working on multiple projects, which are still in the process of being arranged, edited and exhibited.

Trent Parke, a Magnum photographer from Australia, is one of the first photographers that Rebecca and I showed our Violet Isle book dummy to a couple of summers ago in Paris.  There was good reason: He and his wife, Narelle Autio, the wonderful and painterly photographer, had already published a joint book of their photographs, The Seventh Wave (2000). So no surprise that Trent was the first to notice how our two bodies of work played off each other.
