Pilbara Stories (2012)

The Pilbara is home to some of the world’s oldest living cultures, rich with natural resources and new industry, a place of vast horizons, story and discovery, of people and prospect.

In her Pilbara photographs, Ketaki Sheth was able to find moments of deep connection with the place and with the possibility that the subjects presented to her: her portraits are touching and intimate, yet, stealthily precise inviting further reading into the personalities of the sitters. Ketaki approached her Australian subjects as she usually does: with openness, curiosity and patience to hear their stories.

This project was commissioned by FORM, an independent, non-profit cultural organization that develops and advocates for excellence in creativity and artistic practice in Western Australia.  The photographers worked in collaboration with FORM Curator Sharmila Wood & the Pilbara community.
