Daily Helping for November 12th, 2022 – Hilary Wardhaugh – guru bung dhaura

A photo of a landscape by Hilary Wardhaugh. There was bright red bush branches in the foreground and dark tree trunks in the background.

This photography project came to me through a recommendation, and I love it. Hilary Wardhaugh is an Australian photographer, and guru bung dhaura is a collection of photos that aim to capture the spaces of the land that were originally owned and inhabited by the indigenous peoples of Australia. Interestingly, the title of this collection, guru bung dhaura, means stony ground. But that’s not what I see when I look at these photos. Instead I see beautiful and almost soft-looking landscapes. There’s something very peaceful about them, which is an interesting contradiction to the history of the land itself. Love these!
