Author(s): HILDER Brett
Another Time Past Created is a sumptuous distillation of the visual and written notebooks kept during a lifetime of travel by Australian photographer Brett Hilder. This unique and beautiful book is at once a poetic journal, a philosophical travelogue, an evocative photographic collection and a window into the mind of a creative and passionate artist. It is an evocation of a journey through lands of Spanish culture in the Mediterranean and Latin America, and to Eritrea in Africa, as well as a meditation on the ties that bind him to his homeland. Brett Hilder's words form the background to his astonishing photographs of people and landscapes.
