Maria Fredericks lives in Kalumburu Community with her family where she helps care for children and also works at the Strong Women’s Centre. Maria is a Warnambol Gambera woman and is a traditional owner for Kingana country in the north Kimberley region. Maria first held a camera and started taking photos in 2017 as part of the Olympus vision Project supported by Enterprise Learning Projects. Since then Maria has continued to practice and learn her craft, heading out on country to capture the land surrounding Kalumburu. Maria also loves taking portraits and telling stories through these images.
This project is supported through Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
