Three generations celebrate Naidoc Week
CAPTURING striking images of three generations of empowered Aboriginal females is the basis of Dianella photographer Sasha Mortimore’s latest project to celebrate Naidoc Week from July 815.
Inspired by this year’s theme, ‘Because of her we can’, she captured Evelyn Mitchell, daughter Anne Mitchell and granddaughter Dana Woodley to represent their matriarchal heritage.
Former Mercy College (Koondoola) schoolmates, Mrs Mortimore and Anne worked together to bring the project to life with Ms Mitchell and her only daughter Dana (10) flying to Perth from Karratha for the occasion.
Three generations: Dana Woodley, her mother Anne Mitchell and grandmother Evelyn Mitchell.
