Photographer Barbara McGrady looks back

27 November 2023

In a career spanning over 30 years, Gomeroi (Gamilaraay)/Murri photojournalist Barbara McGrady has built up a long list of achievements.

“I have always been interested in our mob, connected to our own surroundings,” she told Koori Radio’s Lola Forester.

In particular, Barbara is noted for sports photography.

“I’m interested in how and why we play the game.”

Among Barbara’s famous photographic subjects are Prince Harry, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, and other celebrities.

In 2014, Barbara won the National Indigenous Human Rights Anthony Mundine Courage Award, which she said she felt “very honoured” to win.

She also won the 2015 Solid Screen International Award for Women in Film and Photography.

Barbara’s work has been shown in many exhibitions, including the 22nd Sydney Biennale in 2020.

Her latest exhibition is in the University of Sydney’s Chau Chak Wing Museum, now open until the 10th of June 2024.
