In her gritty and powerful body of work, Ingetje Tadros presents an insider’s view of the struggles faced by remote Aboriginal communities undergoing the hardships that stem from dislocation. Her photos demonstrate both the community trust she earned and her empathy for individuals living far from the public eye.
With the support of FotoEvidence Press, Ingetje launched a fund raising campaign for the publication of the book This Is My Country
The publication of This Is My Country will create a permanent record of and bring attention to the plight of Aboriginal communities under threat. It will serve as a call to Australian society to support their First People and end the displacement of their communities.
Ingetje Tadros occupies a unique place in the world of social documentary photography, capturing the triumphs, tragedy and diversity of people’s lives through her intuitive storytelling. With a passion deeply rooted in humanitarian causes, her photography is often confronting and provocative: conveying a powerful message by telling people’s stories at a community level and providing a conduit for communication between different cultures on a global platform.
Ingetje has reached 45% of her goal and only has 10 days left to get her work printed in this hard cover book by FotoEvidence Press.
By backing This Is My Country you will be a part of creating an enduring document about the struggle for justice of Australia’s First People and supporting Aboriginal communities as they fight displacement.

In Tadros’ body of work, every picture tells a story that is rich in detail. It takes determination and patience to get stories from remote communities – you have to earn the trust of every single person there. It’s so rare that photojournalists can invest the time to do a story like this and we are rewarded with an insider’s view of this hardscrabble life.
Good luck to you, Ingetje! Thank you for the work you do.
