Nauru Diary - Sally McInerney Photography

Shown at Ginkgo Gallery, Glebe, May 2013


Unintended autobiographies can be read between the lines of certain handmade signs and notices. Concerning lost companions, transactions of labour, sex, food and unbroken horses, declarations of love, the memorialisation of self and others, they seem like private letters to the world, posted from shadow-caves on the fringe of public life.

Bribery sign, Meneng

This feisty sign facing the main road appeared on the day of the annual Fun Run. It was attached to the window of an ordinary house, with chickens running about, the usual weathered trampoline, and the occupants calmly sitting in the yard.
