Doug Aitken: Diamond Sea (Access/Excess)

Doug Aitken: Diamond Sea (Access/Excess)
Library Shelf Location 18.AITK
Publication Date Oct 2000
Description "Diamond Sea" is a photographic journey through Diamond Areas One and Two: a highly secure 70,000 square kilometre area along the coastline of the Namibian desert. This area, containing the world's richest diamond mine, has been sealed off from public access since 1907. Aitken struggled through bureaucratic red tape to obtain permission to film in the Diamond Areas. Aitken's photographs reveal how the man-made corporate-owned landscape and the vast topographic expanse of the Namibian desert are equally subject to narrative construction.
