Abstract

Images are often used as aids for understanding history and for communicating research outcomes. In this paper I discuss two strong historical images, one from Darwin in the early 20th century and one from Portuguese Timor (Timor-Leste) from immediately after World War II. I talk about the circumstances under which these photographs were taken and how we can interpret them in terms of what we know they represent and how they could enhance our understanding of historical events. I also talk about alternative readings of the images.
