Moolap (Nomad) by Russell James

NOMAD  began as James’ highly personal attempt to understand and interpret, through photography, the clash of ancient and modern cultures he witnessed growing up in Australia.

Deeply inspired by the Prime Minister of Australia’s 2008 “Apology” to its Indigenous people – for their profound grief, suffering and loss caused by past governments’ culturally destructive policies and actions – James began collaborating with a number of Indigenous Australian artists, whom each painted their own evocative interpretations and cultural “story” onto his images.
