Celebrating the Strength of Culture

Celebrating the Strength of Culture

One of Australia’s leading Aboriginal photographers. Professor Wayne Quilliam encourages Indigenous people across the globe to enter a photographic competition dedicated to the preservation of culture.

Sinchi’s inaugural photography competition provide a unique opportunity for visual story tellers around the world to be recognised for their talent and commitment to the preservation of culture and indigenous rights. The competition will be judged by world acclaimed photographers Wayne Quilliam, Jimmy Nelson and Laura Beltran Villamizar.

The aim of the competition is to celebrate the strength and beauty of indigenous culture through visual storytelling. This can be inspired by many things from activism, relationship to nature, spirituality, community, everyday life to art, music and cultural practice.

For more than 30 years I have worked with Indigenous people across the world to record and document incredible stories. Each photograph takes on the aesthetics of culture, and what is embedded in our psyche; surrealism, totemic tribalism even introspective discovery which can create subjective visualisations. This ‘competition’ encourages our storytellers to share their individual perspectives of life and the path they follow” says Quilliam.
The challenge is for all of us to care enough about what lies outside our own world, so we can recover what is nearly lost.
