Quenten Agius


Pete Thornton

what pete shot

A ‘mostly’ portrait and ‘brief’ interview series by professional photographer Pete Thornton exploring the idea that one image has the power to tell the whole story.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa identities to come.

Stay tuned… Pete

Quenten Agius

A husband, a father, a grandfather, a local, a footballer, a teacher, a mate, a storyteller.

Most of all, Aboriginal man Quenten Agius is a community-minded man. He holds dear his Aboriginal heritage and invites people to share with him the wonders and stories of Aboriginal culture – a culture he stresses belongs to all of us and is to be shared by all.

Quenten’s work as an Aboriginal guide – who lives on Country, knows his Country and cares about his Country – is how he involves local, national and international guests to connect with his ancient culture and ancestors.

‘I welcome you to the lands of the Adjahdura (Narungga) and Ngadjuri people, the lands of my ancestors; the lands I am physically and spiritually connected to.’ – Quenten Agius
