Building on the considerable success of the inaugural publication “Hijacked 1 – Australia and America” this volume is again an expansive photographic anthology, that compels us to consider two socially divergent and disparate photographic nations. Germany and Australia are juxtaposed to stimulate conversation, suggest connection and invite deconstruction. “Hijacked 2” showcases the diverse talents and perspectives of 32 contemporary German and Australian photographers. With a focus on the depiction and representation of the young, the boundary-riding, and fringe-dwelling, “Hijacked 2” is layered with imagery both evocative and confronting, dreamlike and rousing.
