Our Birds – a showcase of colour and culture
Avid photographer and Nhulunbuy High School student Siena Stubbs (pictured) officially launched her book Our Birds at the Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Art Centre.
The enthusiastic ornithologist, from Yirrkala in North East Arnhem Land, turned to photography at age 12.
The birds are named using Yolngu and English, and Siena shares some of her Yolngu culture in providing facts about birds, and in revealing their peculiar habits.
At the launch, Siena spoke of the importance of connection to country. She will submit Our Birds as part of her Stage 2 Creative Arts course.
