National Library of Australia …

My gratitude goes to Craig Hodges of ACT who sent me a message today with the welcome information that my volume of indigenous images – “To Be Indigenous” – is currently featured and on display in the reading room of The National Library of Australia in Canberra.

A bit pleased about that …

The volume is 64 pages landscape, hardcover and 13″x11″ on premium stock – features a forward by Walkley winning journalist Tony Koch and images from many north Queensland indigenous communities.

Below is a cover image and a selection of pics from inside the volume. More info on books can be found here.

  1. Brian,
    Congratulations on the publication of ‘To Be Indigenous’. As discussed earlier privately, your book really stood out on the display here in the reading room at the National Library of Australia down here in Canberra.

    I particularly like your shot of Eddy Deemal, who as I mentioned I met up at Elim Beach back in early 2010.

    The images in this book are hard-hitting, honest, compassionate and speak volumes about the lives of disadvantaged Indigenous Australians living in remote regions. Yet you also capture the beauty and connectedness. It is a remarkable photo-essay. May you travel more widely and publish more.
