Stewart Roper’s connection with Anangu and the APY Lands stretches back to 1990 when he went to work in Amata as a nurse.
Stewart ended up working full time on the APY Lands for almost a decade. Since then, he’s continued to visit Anangu communities as a back-up nurse when local staff go on leave.
When not working as a nurse, Stewart has spent a great deal of time photographing Anangu country and the people who call it home.
Last year, Stewart published a book of his photographs called ‘Palya’.
In this interview, Stewart talks about his book and reflects on what it’s like to take photos on Anangu land.
