I’m stoked to be a finalist of 2023 Nyland Photography Prize for my portrait of Kartie below. This work is on exhibition at Royal Society of Arts South Australia, Adelaide

Artist Statement

Today, still thousands of refugees who arrived in Australia by boat have been denied visas. This includes children. Without a path to residency and citizenship, they are unable to access vital services such as Centrelink, Medicare and Education support. Denied recognition, they have been ghosted by the government. Their resilience is remarkable.
