Fiona Foley: The Oyster Fishermen - Art Collector

Fiona Foley, The Oyster Fishermen 1, 2011. Ultrachrome print on paper. Edition of 15, 60 x 80cm

In this new body of work, Foley again explores the greater historical narrative of Queensland and it’s treatment of indigenous people. Through a series of 16 sepia-toned and hand-tinted photographs, she examines, in particular, the relationship between fishermen and indigenous people which she describes as one of exploitation and harsh brutality.
