Ray Martin is one of Australia’s most prolific TV journalists and entertainment personalities, with a career spanning over 50 years. Martin has been awarded five Gold Logies, an Order of Australia and an Honorary Doctorate. He has a passion for photography, always carrying his trusty Leica camera. Martin has published a best-selling photo book, presented talks about photography and held multiple exhibitions. Naa Nura is an ode to Martin’s Kamilaroi heritage and his love of the Australian landscape.

Leanne Tobin is driven by a strong sense of ‘truth-telling’; about what happened on the land of her Dharug Ancestors. Through her collection of ethereal glass-blown eels, she encourages honest dialogue about the past and to how to nurture respect and care for Country.
