Supported by the Macquarie Foundation and the Hayden Reynolds Tiwi Project, David traveled to the Tiwi Islands, a remote Island chain off the Northern Coast of Australia’s northern Territory. Prior to contact with Europeans, the Tiwi people remained largely geographically isolated and developed independently from their Aboriginal relations on the mainland. The foundation of their culture centres around the sea, reflected in the shoals, reefs and sand bars on their horizons.

David has captured a slice of the islands themselves and the lives of their inhabitants to support fundraising for the Tiwi Islands College, a unique educational institution supporting Aboriginal youth on the island.
