"Conversations with the Mob" by Megan Lewis
...from the Sydney Writer's Festival website (more info at link):
"In 2002, Walkley Award-winning photojournalist Megan Lewis went to live with the Martu people – one of the last indigenous groups in Australia’s vast Western Desert to come into contact with Europeans. Through this stunning collection of photographs and oral stories, Conversations with the Mob captures the beauty, humour, sadness and friendship of a traditional Aboriginal tribe at odds with western culture."
Free lecture/presentation by Megan Lewis on Saturday, May 24 2008 (12:30 - 13:30) to be held at;
Pier 4/5, Hickson Road

...and Megan Lewis' website;
If you plan on attending take an extra $49 with you... her book is amazing! The printed photos are much better than any of her work displayed on the web and the additional stories and information included make it a lot more than just another photo book, it's a really fascinating read and a lot can be learned from it... oh yeah and having had the chance to already hear her speak I can say she really shines as a human being!
