The Desart Photography Prize, now in its sixth year, provides important platform where the Aboriginal photographer is behind the lens rather than being the observed. The Prize emerged out of the broader Aboriginal Art Worker program that delivers opportunity for the development of technical skills and experimentation with new media. The work presented captures their lives through their eyes with a sense of comfort and familiarity that may only be conveyed by one who belongs. Participating photographers provide us with an intimate insight into their community life.

These works are on exhibition at Desart, Reg Harris Lane, Todd Mall, Alice Springs until Thursday 14th September 2017.
All works are for sale. For sales inquiries please contact Desart on (08) 8953 4736 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
