For Aboriginal people, historical photographs are not just archival images; they represent family and country. Photographs are portals into the past. They let people see things that are hard to talk about. Things we might have missed. They allow us to reflect on who we were, and who we are today.
The Minaaka Apinhanga: Through Many Eyes exhibition goes behind the frame of historical photographs of Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Ranges and into the world of the people that they depict.
Artworks and stories by contemporary Adnyamathanha people create an exhibition that is a deeply personal exploration of history, family and identity, as developed by Adnyamathanha and Barngarla first time curator, Rhodes Scholar and South Australian Museum Early Career Researcher Rebecca Richards.
