'Picture-Picture': Photographing Larrakia beauty. Photographs in the colonial era had both negative and positive meanings depending on the context in which they were produced and presented. Paul Foelsche was Darwin’s first Inspector of Police and for forty years from1871 he enforced law and order including the authorising of punitive raids over Aboriginal people throughout the Northern Territory. But whatever he may have been or represented Foelsche was also a superb amateur photographer who from 1877 to 1891 recorded remarkable portraits of Larrakia people. As a Larrakia photographer I am reclaiming these photographs by Foelsche and in doing so I will recast them as enduring records of Larrakia beauty.
