    Thank you. I basically know the history, but I just don't understand the coupling of two photographs in this case, like those two shore sights.
    Maybe though I'm expecting too much from that coupling. It's not the photos as such, I just do not get the point of that formal structure.

    The work concerns Women of the Stolen Generation and (the portraits) and the Country / Dreamtime to which they are connected. More than one image of Country / Dreamtime represents multiple connections (family). I agree it's easier for Australians to understand the work and is in itself an abstract work requiring knowledge of the political and cultural undertows.

    Anyone from Canada familiar with our "Residential Schools" tragedy/atrocity will understand and appreciate these portraits.
