Meet the dogs from the Pilbara region
In this blog you will meet dogs from the Pilbara region of northern Western Australia, who have worked closely with their communities. See how they bear witness to momentous historical movements and reflect on the ongoing work for social and political change at a community and national level.
A bit dramatic? Indeed, but this is tongue-in-cheek, as anyone closely associated with this project will recognise that I have plagiarised this text from our standard preamble promotional text for this exhibition.
This blog is a visual journey through the project with the ever-present camp dog. Anyone who has ever visited or worked in a remote community will know that camp dogs are an essential element. Often unassuming, a bit cheeky at times, but always in the background—or under foot which was the case at the Jigalong BBQ with about seven dogs wishing we would throw them a sausage or two.
Enjoy these pictures, documenting the project from the perspective of the self-determined camp dog.
