Portrait of a People

Portrait of a People is first and foremost a book of photographs taken by Heide of the Tiwi and of Tiwi life over a twenty year period, but it is more than just a picture book, in that it also relates the history, and describes the lifestyle culture and art of the Tiwi.

From her first visit to the islands, Heide developed a unique relationship with the Tiwi, largely through her close friendship with an older, highly respected Tiwi woman; she is now regarded as “Gerardine’s sister”. Heide maintained a diary of her experiences with the Tiwi, and some of the stories of her adventures have been included.
