Collaborating with Australia’s most distinguished Aboriginal photographic artist, Professor Wayne Quilliam, the remote Aboriginal community of Yarralin Northern Territory Australia share a visual story of land-rights and self-determination with the world.
With a career spanning more than 20 years, Quilliam is regarded as one of Australia’s most respected photographers for his work in Indigenous and International affairs. NAIDOC Indigenous artist of the year, Human Rights and Walkley Awards plus numerous art accolades, he continues to evoke emotive discussion, with exhibitions in Europe, USA, Asia, South America and Australia.
Wayne visited Yarralin in early August to capture ‘Our Place’ 2017 Yarralin Calendar. ‘Our Place’
The intrinsic connection to place is expressed through the faces of the community, their stories and the country captured through Wayne’s photographs.
"Capturing the essence of community, that evokes a passionate response, is more intuitive than visual. By watching, listening and conversing with the Yarralin community the photographs took on a life of their own, as the camera become a tool on this incredible journey of laughter and inclusiveness” comments Quilliam.The calendar marks all the standard Australian Holidays and significant Aboriginal calendar dates and timelines the history of the land hand-over. ‘Our Place’ 2017 Yarralin Calendar represents a unique cultural learning opportunity and the chance for people all over the world to connect and support the self-determination of Aboriginal people in remote Australia.
Our first project was in cooperation with Tiwi Designs art centre and was led by project director, celebrated aboriginal photographer and former NAIDOC artist of the year Wayne Quilliam. This has been running since April 2017.
We launched the project by purchasing camera equipment, laptops and recording devices for participants in the community. This was then supported by a series of workshops ran by Wayne with content coordinated by the arts centre and Xavier Catholic College (the local school).
