Winhanganha Mayiny: Gary Grealy in collaboration with OLALC

Sat 25 November 2023, - Sun 28 January 2024,

Throughout 2020 and 2021 renowned Australian portrait photographer Gary Grealy worked with Orange Local Aboriginal Land Council and Orange Regional Gallery to create a series of portraits of people from across the Orange Aboriginal community. The portraits celebrate the diversity of skill and knowledge represented in the area; ranging across the fields of art, archaeology, language, sport and community work.

Titled Winhanganha (to think, know, remember) Mayiny (people), the project celebrates the importance of shared knowledge and leadership in community. Over multiple visits Grealy met and worked with each sitter to create a portrait that spoke to their identity and role in helping build the community’s shared identity. Within each portrait there is an object or location that speaks to directly to their work. Across the different areas each person is united by the belief of working for community and a shared belief in the Wiradjuri philosophy of Winhanganha.
