Artwork Statement

'I am accompanying Ruby on her journeys, as general dogsbody and photodocumentor. I'm photographing her journey back to her country, and documenting the Bundjalung people as they are now. It is a view through Aboriginal eyes and is a significant record of the Bundjalung people. All photographs have been taken with the full support and permission of both Ruby Langford, and her people.

This photodocumentation is a statement that this tribal group and its sub-clans exist - it is not hidden. It is their own statement that they do exist and each one who is photographed wants the others of the mob to see the photographs'. The artist 1990
