A selection of photographs by the Award-winning photojournalist Barbara McGrady.

The exhibition showcases McGrady’s best works from a 30-year photographic archive, capturing significant social, political, and historical moments, portraying powerful Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals. Also included are photographs of Indigenous performances, high-profile individuals, and community events.

Barbara McGrady: Australia Has a Black History was curated by Lily Thomas-McKnight a Wiradjuri and Gomeroi woman, raised on Yuin land (Nowra, NSW).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this event contains images of deceased persons.

Barbara McGrady, or Aunty Barb as she is known in her community, is a Gomeroi/Gamilaraay Murri yinah (woman), born in Mungindi, now living on Gadigal Country in Glebe. McGrady is one of the first Aboriginal female photographers with expertise in elite sports photojournalism.

Her works reveal an insider’s perspective into historical events, such as the death of TJ Hickey, and the Black Lives Matter protests. These major political events of contemporary Aboriginal life are seldom portrayed positively by mainstream media.
