Portraits of Language

Language defines a culture; it gives expression to the experiences of those who speak it. Preserving and growing languages is an important step in preserving and growing a culture. Acclaimed photographer Mervyn Bishop and The State Library of NSW worked with community to create Portraits of Language, a photographic and oral documentation exhibition highlighting the Local Elders of Dubbo region and their relationship to traditional language.
