This art exhibit was created by the acclaimed art and fashion photographer, Russell James and co-created with Indigenous Australian Artists who were deeply rooted in the Australian Reconciliation Movement. Overall, Nomad Two Worlds was designed to raise awareness and inspire change through a meaningful, artistic effort in order to preserve the culture.

During early 2008, Rudd apologized to the Australian nation for nearly two-hundred years of grievances against the aboriginal Australian people....
