In 2014, while hitchhiking through Western Australia, I was lucky enough to spend some time on Ullawarra on Thudgari Country in a remote part of the Pilbra. This remote outstation is leased and managed by the traditional owners, the Thudgari People who in 2009 were successful in their native title claim legally recognising their culture and country.
Traveling with nothing more than the bag on my back for several months I volunteered my photography skills along the way. At Ullawarra I was invited to document daily life on the station, the people and culturally significant sites.
A sincere thank you to Merle Dann and her family for welcoming me into their home and looking after me. A special thanks also to elder and station manager Charlie Lapthorne for taking me, this wide eyed city kid, under his wing for a few weeks.
