Abstract

Justice Denied is a biographical (visual and text) paper that combines stories of indigenous groups whose life chances are significantly altered and diminished because of the social space they occupy. The images included in this paper are a synopsis of work from a project that has spanned fifteen years. The text derives from interviews conducted between the participants and ourselves. Gathering the stories in Justice Denied argues for a shift away from the notion that ‘to know’ is a purely rational response to stimuli. As such, the work produced seeks to present knowledge as a combination of the rational and non-rational dimensions of cognition. David Lloyd and Angela Blakely lecture in photojournalism and documentary practice at Griffith University. For over fifteen years they have worked, individually and/or collaboratively, on a number of projects that have ranged from conflict areas to personal crises. They were commissioned by the History section of the Australian Army to document Australia's involvement in the Rwanda crises (publication: The Rwanda Mission, ed Gavin Fry). In 2006 and 2008 they returned to Rwanda to collect stories of the survivors of the 1994 genocide who are denied justice through the pragmatics of national politics and the indifference of the international community. Whether working collaboratively or alone, Blakely and Lloyd argue documentary practice as an intersection of investigative journalism, ethnography and the politics of aesthetics. Their work is published in books, exhibitions and papers.
