Marcus hunting

Photographer's Name: 
Andy Lewis

Marcus, a young Aboriginal man stands with his spear whilst hunting for food on the saltwater flats near his home Mata Mata in Arnhem Land, Australia. This community is so far removed, geographically, linguistically and culturally, from the rest of Australia, I often felt like I was in another country. Marcus's clothing speaks of his ability to bridge cultures; he was recently sponsored by Bomaderry Tigers AFL team to attend school in the Kangaroo Valley, New South Wales, complementing his current bush education.
