I explore my culture, reflecting on the social and political issues that have influenced my life, capturing and sharing my images to provoke my audiences. I photograph the landscape and indigenous people to portray my concepts that encompass racial segregation with ironic gestures and I explore cultural identity in attempt to raise a broader awareness of Indigenous Australians today.
