Summary
Aboriginal Elder David Mowaljarlai and photographer Jutta Malnic rekindle a story that constitutes the oldest collective memory of humankind. Yorro Yorro tells of Wandjina creation spirits and their 'crossing over' into ancestral beings and then eventually into human form. Yorro Yorro translated from Ngarinyin means 'everything standing up alive'. It follows the journey of original creation in the Kimberley and renewal of nature. 'Yorro Yorro' is a testament to the extraordinary collective knowledge of the Wandjina peoples of the Kimberley
