Taungurung and Filipino man Alan Stewart uses photography to document his family, community, and personal journey as a First Nations person.
Reflecting stories from his childhood—first in Manila, and then in Melbourne— Stewart’s pictures showcase his rich Filipino and Australian Aboriginal backgrounds.
He is a photographer predominantly focusing on landscape and street photography, and has premiered work at various festivals including Yirramboi, BlakHeart and PHOTO 2021. He was also the recipient of the Metro Tunnel Creative Program 2D Award at The 8th Koorie Art Show in 2021.
