Building on Young’s award winning ‘Grassy Woodlands’ series, this exhibition re-imagines 19th Century human experience in light of Australian mammals that have become vulnerable or extinct. Young explores the question of who inhabits the woodlands across time through still life photographs of mammals, plants, insects and artefacts. Inspired by the work of ecologists Young set out to find intact grassy woodlands, the wildflowers within, and evidence of animal inhabitation. Her findings are shown in large still-life colour photographs and a series of cyanotypes. 

Inhabiting the Woodlands is Young’s first solo exhibition at Goulburn Regional Art Gallery and will present a new body of work.
