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.
Aboriginal Portraits require forethought and relevance, who is the person, where is their country, what is their story.
