The work of Baldwin Spencer and F. J. Gillen, particularly "The Native Tribes of Central Australia" (1899), has been enormously influential for more than a century. Their detailed descriptions of Aboriginal life were the first major template for Australia's understanding of Aboriginality. Spencer's beautiful photographs, in particular, excited the imaginations of both academic anthropologists and the general public. This is an expanded edition of "The Photographs of Baldwin Spencer", with a new introduction by John Morton that reflects the considerable advances in knowledge and thinking about Aboriginality, since 1982.
