Seeing Saltwater Country

Written by Dale Kentwell and Sally Mayman


The Dampier Peninsula in Australia’s north-west is home to many remote Aboriginal communities. Painter Dale Kentwell and photographer Sally Mayman have collaborated with the people of the region in a series of portraits that depicts remote community life and celebrates the beauty of a place unlike any other. At the heart of these portraits is a strong and enduring connection to country.
