The Desert Paths:

 

Walkabout refers to a rite of passage during which male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months.

 

Through this practice they would trace the paths, or “songlines”, that their ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds. To white employers, this urge to depart without notice (and reappear just as suddenly) was seen as weakness in the Aboriginal nature, but for indigenous peoples, walkabout was incredibly important culturally.

 

Walkabout is a time of reflection in solitude from community and routine, a time to detach and fortify the spirit. Walkabout is a sacred occasion that Jenny has wonderfully captured in the red earth of the outback
