This is a project by contemporary Western Aranda artists working within the heritage of Albert Namatjira or ‘Hermannsburg school’ of watercolour painting. This project engages a less well-known aspect of this heritage – photographs. The artists have created a body of paintings in response to photographs from the South Australian Museum’s Battarbee Collection, which includes the rich photographic archive of the Victorian artist Rex Battarbee. These photographs were mostly taken in the mid to late 1930s in and around Ntaria/Hermannsburg, mostly through Tjoritja/the West MacDonnell Ranges.
