Retrospect is a living archive of memories from the Afghanistan War, featuring Australian veterans and their families. It moves beyond the news headlines to give a sense of how military personnel and their families are impacted by war. As the project’s online content producer, I shaped interviews recorded by ABC RN Executive Producer Michelle Rayner into a series of mini multimedia documentaries for the website, working in partnership with Megan Lawrence.
The project features unique video recorded in Afghanistan by ABC cinematographer Neale Maude, as well as portraits shot by renowned war photographer Stephen Dupont. Retrospect is a landmark project produced by ABC RN and the University of NSW, and has been funded by an Australian Research Council Linkage-funded research project investigating and prototyping new digital forms of war memorial.
