Birth Certificates

This accompanied an article published in the Victorian Law Institute journal, about the difficulties some indigenous Australians face because they are unable to access their birth certificate, due to factors such as being born in remote communities, not having a birth certificate recorded in the first place, or the difficulties in getting their certificates. I tried to keep a potentially complex idea quite simple, with the idea of “valid” people being able to particpate in activities such as driving, voting, or getting an education, whilst the “unknown” person looks on in limbo. © Sonia Kretschmar 2009
