At 2530km, the Murray River is Australia’s longest waterway, meandering through the country from the Snowy Mountains to the Southern Ocean. Over the many decades since European settlement, the river has become a wrought system of dams, weirs and channels that have restricted and politicized its flow. Melbourne-based photographer Daniel Boetker-Smith combines portraits, still-lifes and landscapes to create The Murray River Project, a modern-day compendium of stories found along the Murray, journeying into environmental and social landscapes that stretch along it. Employing strategies of chronological anarchy, the project’s unfolding narrative is a poignant cue for storytelling that is non-linear and multi-layered—like life, like memory, or like the river.
