Aboriginal  Photography  by Wayne Quilliam

specialising in event photography, aboriginal australians and australian aborigines

 


Understanding the context of the person in the photograph is important when photographing Aboriginal people.  Capturing the image of any Indigenous person requires forethought and relevance.

Quilliam’s visual record of Aboriginal Australia reflects a profound experience of the developing intensity between personality, self-awareness, the subconscious and social inclusion his photographs portray.  By creating a juxtaposition of an ancient/modern culture, presents the ritual as that absurd, surreal alchemy between a demising reality and an over-positive projection towards progress.
