Eric Bridgeman (Yuriyal) presents a selection of photographic work created between his home in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea and Australia.

Yuriyal (meaning: Man of Yuri) belongs to the Yuri tribe of South Simbu, Papua New Guinea. He produces portraits collaboratively with his fellow tribesmen and those closest to him, in traditional and domestic settings, to form personal tributes through intimate and meaningful exchanges within men’s spaces—the artist’s studio, the rugby field and the ‘hausman’, a traditional Papua New Guinean men’s house.

This exhibition includes new work presented alongside photographs taken over the last decade, but never shown before. The photographs are accompanied by written language, which provides further insight into the personal experiences and relationships depicted.
