Ali Curung is a desperately remote aboriginal community of around five hundred in the arid centre of the Northern Territory of Australia. The children of Ali Curung rarely leave their extremely remote settlement ... and give a warm welcome to 'strangers' who occasionally make the trek from 'outside'. I made this image when a group of kids flagged me down for a chat and a giggle on my arrival to document the community.
