Undiscovered

Undiscovered is a photographic project that reflects upon European settlement in Australia.

This moment was presented in history as the ‘discovery’ of Australia, despite the fact Aboriginal people had been living here for thousands of years.The new British settlers had no idea of the basis and meaning of Aboriginal culture prior to their arrival.

Aborigines were seen as inferior, people with no education or organisation, their knowledge and experience of the land was ignored. Undiscovered is a contemporary look at Europe an settlement in Australia, a land already populated by its original people.
