Melbourne Photograph Art Scene in the 80's

I am currently putting together a selection of work for the online publication 'Second Nature', published by RMIT. Part of the process requires I write an artist's statement, which I am in the process of writing. Part of my statement, refers to a time in Melbourne, if not Australia, somewhere in the 80's, where Artists, were beginning to question the nature of the photographic 'document'. Given that this is pre-web, I'm not having a great deal of luck finding much online. I do know the CCP published several postcards, one in particular, by Janina Green. The image's title from memory was something like, 'Northcote Baths, Melbourne [with a date]. I putting it out there does anyone from my readership, if your still hanging around here, have one of these postcards? If they do and know my contact details, could they contact me or, leave a comment. Thanks in advance.

Self-Portraits

Self-portraiture is nothing new in Photography. Digital Photography increases the ease and speed of applying such a project. [flickr is rife with narcissistic projects like this, but what photographer isn't interested in a picture of themselves every now and again, although the 365 day project is an interesting one] This guy, has an ongoing project that he says he will do until he dies. Interestingly, he also lists several other projects that are long term documentary in nature, of the most recent internet famous one is by Noah, who interestingly only ran the project for 6 years.
