Roseranna Larry: Winner of the Desart Photography Prize 2017 Roseranna Larry (born 1980) is an emerging artist and art worker at Ikuntji Artists. Roseranna is a certified interpreter, director of the community council, and a strong and respected voice in the community. Roseranna honed her photography skills at Desart photography workshops with Steve Pearce and took out the competitive prize with her image Familys (Waltja). Judges Hetti Perkins and Miriam Charlie commended the artwork for its coherent and joyful expression of culture: It is carried in the children, painted on the truck, and of course is in the artist behind the lens. Roseranna spoke to us on her win: "I really liked going with Steve and taking photos. It reminded me of being a child and visiting all the different places. I used to climb this truck when I was a child. I found out through social media that I won the Desart Photography Prize. I was really happy and I showed every one of my family at Hidden Valley the photo. I was so proud and they made me proud too when they were so happy for me. I am still proud!" Inset: Roseranna Larry.
