Barbara McGrady: Always Will Be -  - Darlinghurst - NSW
The Australian Centre for Photography is proud to present this important exhibition by Indigenous photographer Barbara McGrady. The exhibition breaks new ground in its capacity to represent photography’s mutability as a medium and in its ability to express the subjective voice of the photographer. These works stand as historical documents of political, social and community events that hold unique value within the Indigenous communities. They prove that visual records are shaped entirely by our own social and personal position within a history. Contemporary images of Indigenous people primarily within the urban environment of Sydney become a powerful narrative about what it means to be Kooris in Sydney and First Nations in the new millennium. Barbara McGrady is plugged into events that are considered of importance within the Aboriginal communities. She exclusively documents Indigenous subject matter including protests, Indigenous ‘celebrity’, arts and culture, everyday life and sport, being the only professional female Indigenous sports photographer currently working in this country. For white Australians, Always Will Be is an invaluable opportunity to see the world from an Indigenous perspective.
