Moffatt's accessible, yet acutely personal work consistently offers fresh critiques of societies that are staggering under the weight of racism, sexism, homophobia and economic injustice. While this long-overdue monograph chiefly focuses on Moffatt's "moving images," some of her more well-known photographic series (such as "Laudanum" and "Something More") also figure here.
From the publisher: "The Moving Images of Tracey Moffatt is both visually exciting and the very first monograph to explore in depth the film work of the New York-based Australian artist/photographer, Tracey Moffatt. This book is full of striking images drawn from her films by the artist herself, and also includes her own statements, descriptions of her work, and storyboards. The author, Catherine Summerhayes, writes of Moffatt's experimental work in film from the analytic viewpoint of film studies. She explores Moffatt's films not only as visual art, but as a particular kind of performance art in company with Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and the American surrealist filmmaker Maya Deren."
