Remembering Penny Tweedie
We learn with great sadness of the recent death of Penny Tweedie, a longtime Wildlight photographer and great friend of the peoples of Arnhem Land and East Timor. Penny was an outstanding photojournalist and photographer, a kind friend and a much valued member of the Wildlight family. Our sincere condolences go out to her family. Penny’s empathy, compassion and dedication can be remembered through the hundreds of images of Aboriginal Australians in our archive here.

New Aerials of Sydney Harbour
As Aussie as bush and barbie, koala and kangaroo, the Akubra hat has many other practical uses. Since 1912, Australians have lived, loved and died in their Akubra. Wildlight photographer Grenville Turner has travelled Australia and creatively combined words and pictures to tell the story of the people who wear the Akubra. All Grenville’s Akubra images are model released to boot! “Not only does it shade the eyes from the glare of the hard Australian sun – you can fan a fire with it, keep a snake at bay, water your horse, belt a sheep and swat away flies – or keep it on your head because you like wearing it.” Take a look here for a preview of Grenville’s slant on this most famous of Aussie outback icons or buy the latest (2009) edition of the 96 page picture book at your favourite bookseller or online at ABC Shop.
