A Pictorial Anthology of Aboriginal Australia 1847-2008

An equally emotive record of the first Australians, Portraits from a Land Without People, published in 2009, is now acknowledged as the most comprehensive pictorial history to document Aboriginal culture yet produced. 

Portraits from a Land Without People has so far raised $85,000 for the Jimmy Little Foundation’s work helping improve Indigenous health (renal care in particular). Phillip Adams described Portraits from a Land Without People on Radio National as “a magnificent book …as important a book as anything that’s been published in Australia for years”.

Book Reviews

Portraits from a Land Without People is a magnificent book … as important a book as anything that’s been published in Australia for years.” 
​​​Phillip Adams

"The images compiled for ‘Portraits from a Land Without People’ are but a window into the Indigenous society. The challenge for those who read this collection is to look beyond the window and gaze into the heart and soul of the nation."
​​​​​​Patrick Dodson 

"This collection of photographs is a catalogue of past wrongs, a celebration of Aboriginal empowerment and a testament to Aboriginal survival."
Larissa Behrendt

​​​​​​ "The book has an authenticity that dwarfs most attempts in film, television and print to tell the Aboriginal story of the last two centuries … It is a raw story. It stands on its own and yet pays its respect to so many others who looked through a lens along this long road."​​​​​​​​​​​
Jeff McMullen
