JOSEPH McGLENNON: STRANGE VOYAGE

A life in design and advertising have given photographer Joseph McGlennon an eye for the dramatic. His kangaroo studies are a continuation of his fascination of Cook's return to England in 1771, carrying a vast number of A ustralian specimens of plants and animals previously unknown to Europeans, the strangest of which was a kangaroo. His work seeks to locate the proud but (to European eyes) exotic animal within an unfamiliar (to Australian eyes) and equally exotic European landscape.
