Spanning 20 years, Liss Fenwick photographs the Larrakia Country on which their family lives, addressing the inevitable failures of settling stolen land.
'I grew up in a rural district on the tropical fringe of the “northern territory”, Humpty Doo. Haunted by pictures I took as a teenager (some included in the book) I make photographs of the next generation of my family growing up in this place.'
Darkly humorous and intimate, with the surrounding savannah environment, Humpty Doom engages with what it means to represent what will always be Larrakia land.
