Be inspired by Naomi Hobson's Adolescent Wonderland

Inspired by her direct environment and ongoing connection to country, Naomi Hobson’s Adolescent Wonderland, first displayed as part of Tarnanthi’s Open Hands exhibition, is a series of photographs that tell the real-life story of young Aboriginal people in remote Australia.

Where’s your wonderland? Capture who you really are; your everyday and your community through photography as Adolescent Wonderland tours 12 regional galleries in South Australia from December 2021 until October 2023.
