Hi, I'm Marley, your photographer.
Marley Morgan is a proud Wiradjuri and Gamilaraay women who grew up on Wiradjuri and Gamilaraay/Yuwaalaraay country and is currently based on Gumbaynggirr Country, Coffs Harbour.
Marley’s photography highlights the beauty of First Nations Aboriginal families with a heavy focus on Aboriginal women, motherhood and culture. The strength and resilience of her people to continue and revive cultural practices that were once prohibited serves as inspiration in Marley’s work, which aims to document and showcase the beauty of her people.
“Our languages are tied to our landscapes & sacred waters. Our old people used our language to survey, navigate & understand their countries through songlines & creation stories.
We have staunch & proud people in communities committed to preserving our languages because we know they are a part of our continuing story & we know they are connected to our land. This always was, & always will be Aboriginal Land.”
It is an immense privilege for Marley to be entrusted to hear and tell stories and songs and witness traditional practices and she can never describe the feelings she gets to be surrounded by grounded people strong in culture. Using photography as a medium to document these moments, Marley hope's to capture those feelings through her images and share those with her audience.
Currently located in Coffs Harbour on the Mid North Coast of NSW on Gumbaynggirr Land.
Happy to travel throughout Australia.
