Fine art photography by Jalaru


Solo exhibition at the 2019 Head On Photo Festival @ Cooee Art Gallery

I am an Indigenous photographer and media professional from Broome, Western Australia.

As a Djugan and Yawuru man with tribal connections to Jabirr Jabirr and Gooniyandi people, I am inspired by the unique landscapes and people of the Kimberley region, which feature prominently in my work.

I am a self-taught photographer and was drawn to photography as a visual medium because of its accessibility and the challenge of capturing stories in single images. I experiment regularly with different mediums, and I am interested in expanding my photography into installations and motion work and pushing the boundaries of how conceptual photography can be used in virtual reality.
