Farewell Pirlangimpi

We have finished our two week stay here on the Tiwi Islands - achieved much, learnt more. It has been one of those rich experiences which will be cherished for years to come.

After saying goodbye to the team - with the promise to return and talk through what the research has found and what so many people so generously shared with us, I thought I'd share some of my favourite images from the Island.

A waterway on Bathurst Island; the strait separates the two Tiwi Islands

The shop barge - Tuesday morning, arriving with supplies for the week

The way the windows work on the old church (now gym/storage area)

The Team - Anthony, Anthony, Tony, Barry, Fiona, Irene, Maree, Mary Veronica, Bernardo

A dingo at our door

Loads of lino cuts ready to print at the Women's Centre

The wet - it just takes over...

  1. what an amazing place. i really love the toyota going green. and the lino cuts-potential!

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Love the shot of the lino cuts. And, of course, the beach calls to me.

  3. thanks for sharing your gorgeous images. the overgrown car reminded me of my time in Port Moresby in PNG!x lynda

  4. Looks idyllic Fiona. Can't have been too hard working here.

  5. Your photos brought back memories of working in the Pacific, especially the overgrown car. The lino cuts are great, I'm sure wonderful things will come of them.

  6. Great photos, especially love the top one. Sounds like an amazing time and thanks for letting me tag along, thanks.

  7. I can't believe it's two weeks already! You must both be exhausted and looking forward to spending some time at home (I guess! Maybe you're about to leap off somewhere else!)... Happy Easter, Sara x

  8. What an adventure - so different from our coast line. Lots of subliminal imagery to use in art works to come xoxoxox


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
