Woomera detention centre 2002 - colour series

natural world, passion, protest

Shot on 35mm film in Woomera, South Australia

The bravery, passion and creativity of these student demonstrators who made their way by coach for 24 hours into the Australian desert both fascinated and frightened me.

While the media portrayed them as dangerous potential criminals, I followed them in awe of their readiness to risk arrest, their boldness in breaking down physical barriers to deliver their message of solidarity and to attempt to uplift the refugees in Woomera detention centre.
