what’s in a theme

Magda Szubanski embraces Anna Brown, co-chair of the Equality campaign, during a rally on the front lawn on the day the same-sex marriage bill pass the House of Representatives, at Parliament House in Canberra, December 2017. © 2017, Alex Ellinghausen At Photo Review we’ve never really been ones for explicitly themed issues. And yet, despite our indifference to such conventions, it is intriguing how often some sort of thematic resonance emerges between articles in an issue.

faroe islands

Why visit Surrounded by the dramatic Atlantic Ocean and sitting between Norway and Iceland, the Faroes are an archipelago consisting of 18 islands connected by a combination of bridges and tunnels.

Remarkable cloud formations fuelled by the stormy weather make excellent photographic subjects in their own right. When to go Because the Faroe Islands sit so far north, they provide dramatic contrasts in lighting across all four seasons. No matter what time of…
