Summary

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 Dupont's 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 world's last truly wild frontiers. This work was conducted with the support of the Robert Gardner Fellowship of Photography at Harvard's 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.
