Portraits of Knowledge
Commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts & NT Government, Portraits of Knowledge was a project based in Groote Eylandt, Australia. Situated in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Groote Eylandt is home to the Anindilyakwan people. The project was designed for teenage students from the Angurugu School and to involve Indigenous elders and leaders from the various communities on Groote Eylandt. The project focused on portrait photography and was collaborative in nature. The act of creating portraits of individuals and groups aimed to engender pride, ownership and respect. Selected project imagery including student work was exhibited at the Darwin Library, at the One People One Voice and published into a hard back book for the community's use in 2014.
