Artist's statement

Zareth Long is a quietly spoken young man from Wiluna on the edge of the Western Desert of Western Australia. He attended school at the Clontarf Aboriginal College in Perth where I captured him observing the proceedings of a swimming carnival. He made no attempts to pose for the camera, he simply directed his gaze to the lens on my approach, had his photo taken, and then carried on with his business. All very organic.
