Through My Eyes

Through My Eyes is a photographic project which portrays Australia’s prime ministers from Edmund Barton in 1901 to Julia Gillard in 2010, through an indigenous gaze.

The series asks the viewer to rethink the way they view history. We are asked to see these significant Australian faces through someone else’s perspective, through Aboriginal eyes.

By overlaying Aboriginal faces, with focus on the eyes, the viewer is asked to consider history with a better understanding of its meaning.
