Photos exhibited for Calga rock art
A photography exhibition opened in Umina on Saturday, May 28, featuring The Pulse of the Pilbara by Noel Olive until Sunday, June 5.
The exhibition is at 5 Othonna Terrace, Umina, and the gold coin entry will go toward supporting Aboriginal elders protecting their Calga rock art.
Noel Olive is a writer, artist and photographer who has lived and worked in Aboriginal communities in the Pilbara region of Western Australia for many years.
The photographs in the exhibition depict the harsh beauty of the Pilbara landscape and were taken during the course of his 10 years there.
They were the subject of an exhibition in the Alexander Library, Perth, and some at a small exhibition at the Laycock St Theatre in Gosford.
Mr Olive went to the Pilbara as a lawyer representing Aboriginal people with the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody.
His experiences led him to write two books, Karijini Mirlimirli and Enough is Enough, an account of white colonisation of Western Australia and the devastating impact on Aboriginal people and their culture.
