Don’t let anyone, even your parents, break you. Find good people who care about you and surround yourself with just them. If you can’t find them at first, find good music and fall into it and let it hold you until they come.

First Australians

In Australian media, there is no shortage of coverage of the Aboriginal population. And, according to photographer Amy Toensing, the coverage is not always favorable."On paper, the truth is there’s some really hard stuff going on [within the Aboriginal population] — like with alcoholism and education," Toensing says over the phone from New York.

So when she convinced National Geographic in 2009 to invest in a long-term documentary about Aboriginal culture, Toensing decided to take a different approach:

"It’s about people and how they are still connected to the land," she says of her work. "The moment you start spending time in Aboriginal communities … you can tell there’s this really powerful connection to the Australian landscape."

Nearly four years after starting the project, Toensing’s work has culminated in National Geographic's June issue. The article takes a comprehensive look at life in Aboriginal communities today — and includes a few striking facts, like: “More than a half million Aboriginals currently live in Australia, less than three percent of the [original] population.”

Although stories like these often emphasize “a community in decline,” Toensing’s photos celebrate what has endured. And although the story has gone to print, for Toensing it’s to be continued.
