MARNTI WARAJANGA
Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House Canberra, 26 February 2010 – 20 February 2011


Marnti Warajanga – we’re travelling is a collaboration between Wangka Maya Pilbara Aboriginal Language Centre, award-winning photographer Tobias Titz and the Museum of Australian Democracy.

In Marnti Warajanga you will meet Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians from the Pilbara region of northern Western Australia. In their own words they bear witness to momentous historical movements and reflect on their ongoing work for social and political change at a community and national level.

In Tobias Titz’s unique collaborative portraiture process, each person is photographed with a large format camera using Polaroid Type 665 film. He then photographs the same space without the person in it. Following this, the subjects write something of their choice into the wet ‘empty’ negative. The texts relate to questions about major events such as the Pilbara Strike of 1946, the 1967 Referendum and the 2008 Apology to the Stolen Generations.

Tobias says that providing a place where often long-buried stories can be told ‘allows us to understand where we come from and how to move forward’.

Join these Australians as they tell the story of their journey towards equality in their own country.
