Juno Gemes is one of Australia's most renowned contemporary photographers. For over 40 years, she has advocated for justice, recognition and respect for Aboriginal Australians through her photographic documentation of historic moments from the 1970s to now. Michael Aird is interested in the everyday lived experiences of people. His photographic portrait series, Everybody is Important, demonstrates that everyone's story is of equal value - and importantly seeks to counteract mainstream media's negative depictions of Aboriginal people. Jo-Anne Driessens studied photography including darkroom processes through a four-year cadetship at te State Library of Queensland. Jo-Anne was adopted into a non-Indigenous family, and through her photographic practice, she documents her search and connections with her Aboriginal family.
