Garguree, “The Gully” Aboriginal Place, Katoomba

 

Most of my photography is created in Australia.  I am very aware that whether I might be in a pristine wilderness, or in a busy city, the constant factor is that this land, Australia, is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land.

The local area where I live is traditional land of the Gundungurra and Darug peoples, and the place where I grew up is on the traditional land of the Guringai people.  Some of my favorite places for photography are on traditional land of  the Gadigal of the Eora Nation.

As I do my photographic work, I would like at all times to acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the land upon which I walk.  I recognise that it is their association with the land that sustains Indigenous cultures, languages, spirituality, art, law, and life.  I would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present.
