Garguree, “The Gully” Aboriginal Place, Katoomba, NSW, Australia.
Most of my photography is created in Australia. I always try to be mindful that whether I might be in a pristine wilderness, or in a busy city, the constant factor is that 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 Aboriginal culture, languages, spirituality, art, law, and life. With this in mind, I would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present.
