Landscape at Tingha – Photo of the day
Published by imageservices on August 15, 2008 in Photo of the day.
Last December a few staff members traveled to Tingha and Coffs Harbour to interview two women featured in the Indigenous women’s exhibition Yinalung yenu: women’s journey. This was a four day trip that included traveling through regional NSW taking photographs and recording the women telling their stories of the roles they have played in Australian society, from traditional times to today. This particular image was taken at the town of Tingha, a small community that used to be the largest tin producing area in NSW up until the 1900s. The landscape at Tingha is quite stark with large rocks scattered through almost every property and field much like in this image.
