Michael Cook

Michael Cook’s series Majority Rule asks the question: “What if Indigenous people were 96 percent of the Australian population and non-Indigenous people defined as the four percent?” With a single Indigenous subject multiplied many times in each shot, these photographs place an unfamiliar face square in the territory of white men. The photographs cast the momentary illusion, with visual order and symmetry, that the minority is the majority.
