“This remarkable series of camera portraits is a fruit of his unique experiences over many years of travel in remote areas of Australia.  In thirty-nine studies, he shows the original Australians as people of intelligence and character – individuals, yet as well-adjusted to their own communities as to the country which they occupied for fourteen thousand years without despoiling.  Brief and readable notes to each portrait give a new dimension to the general reader’s understanding, and sketches from aboriginal drawings add further visual pleasure.”
