Australian Aboriginal Studies 2003/2
The political and the personal process in portraiture: Juno Gemes in conversation
To work with an Aboriginal people is not only to see
but also to be seen entirely, and by people who are astute readers of human nature.
I learnt that a people who read their country all the time, in ways more subtle
than I can explain here, understand imagemaking.
This extensive interview with Juno Gemes provides a fascinating
and enlightening insight into her background, her photography and her 30 years
work with the Aboriginal people of Australia.
The entire interview is available
here as a 130KB Acrobat pdf document.
