Aboriginal Visual Histories

The Aboriginal Visual Histories: Photographing Indigenous Australians Project (AVH Project) is an Australian Research Council-funded Discovery Project. The AVH project commenced in 2008 with three primary objectives:

review photographs of Aboriginal people in key collections around Australia and in Europe
produce a systematic history of photographing Aboriginal people from the Australian inception of the medium in 1841 to the present day
collaborate with descendants to incorporate Indigenous perspectives of photographs
