"The Call of the Living Earth: Photographs of Indigenous Australians by Minoru Hokari"



“Country brought you here.”

The life of Minoru Hokari, historian and author of Radical Oral History: Historical Practice of Indigenous Australians, was tragically cut short at the age of 32.

Yet his expansive vision endures in his intimate and vivid photographs of Australia's Gurindji country and its vast terrains of reddish earth. A selection of these photographs, first exhibited in April 2010 at the Hokkaido Museum of Northern Peoples, are now available in this bilingual edition exhibition catalogue, accompanied by serial essays published in 2003 and excerpts from his 2004 book published in Japan.

All the profits will be donated to Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Australian National University.

"Life is not about how long you live, but about how deeply you live," my brother used to say, and he left this world believing that he had lived a rich, full life. I think of this scholarship fund as a way in which we can add many more years to his full but short life of almost 33 years. I sincerely hope that you will support this fund by purchasing this catalogue.
