Alan Stewart: Remembrance

Scott Alley, July to August 2021

Photography by James Henry

Artist statement

Country has always been my escape and connection to my culture. Without it, I lost a sense of self and a way to revitalise my spirit. Those early mornings and long drives helped me to see what’s special about being on Country, land that holds such a deep meaning to my ancestors. I look back now and realise how lucky I was.
