Writers Live - Sally Mayman and Dale Kentwell introduce Seeing Saltwater Country
21st Sep '17 @ Berkelouw Mona Vale
You are invited to meet Sally Mayman and Dale Kentwell when they introduce their new book Seeing Saltwater Country.
The Dampier Peninsula in Australia's north-west is home to many remote Aboriginal communities, Painter Dale Kentwell and photographer Sally Mayman have collaborated with the people of the region in a series of portraits that depicts remote community life and celebrates the beauty of a place unlike any other. At the heart of these portraits is a strong and enduring connection to country.
"Sally Mayman and Dale Kentwell, with the camera and the canvas, have beautifully conveyed in an honest and warm-hearted way what country means to the Aboriginal people living on Saltwater Country in the Dampier Peninsula. Listen to their stories. Listen to the country sing to us all." - Dr. Jeff McMullen AM
