Cape York Road Trip …

Just returned from an interesting ‘road trip’ around Cape York Peninsula Australia – about 3000 kms over 6 days mostly on dirt roads. Collected stories on various subjects including the currently very contentious story on live cattle exports. Made images at the indigenous community of Kowanyama, the ‘Wild River’ – the Staaten, Kalinga cattle station at the Hann River, the current mining town of Weipa, the old mining town of Chillagoe – and the Lamalama indigenous community based at Port Stewart and Princess Charlotte Bay.

The most rewarding image for me from the trip was the frame below of Kowanyama elder “Chook” on his land … the salt pans … where he was teaching his grand children the traditional ways of his people.
