“Stuart was invited by artist Taloi Havini to come and photograph a series of portraits dedicated to a tribe of young people known as the “Blood Generation”.
“This is the name that was given by my father’s generation to those children who were born into war, triggered from external interests in mining and sustained by acts of local political self-determination.” In 1990, the people of Bougainville lived under air, sea, and military blockade for ten-years with a reported loss of twenty thousand lives. Bougainville’s Indigenous landowner’s remain disheartened, displaced, and dissatisfied. The issue remains unresolved and we ask ourselves – who is responsible for the “Blood Generation”?”
Hi Melanesian Wantoks & Friends of the Pacific visiting Sydney/Australia.Please do come along and have a look at these wonderful Photo’s of Autonomous Bougainville Islands and more by Photographer/Artist Stuart Miller.
