The biography is a  thought provoking and moving story about a brave woman who is not afraid to confront people to think about the past, the present and the future time of Aboriginal life in Australia.

Linda, Melbourne, suggests,
In 2019, I saw the Fiona Foley exhibition Who are these strangers and here are they going? at Ballarat International Foto Biennale. So beautiful, so angry, so sorrowful. Reading Fiona Foley’s biography Fiona Foley Provocateur – An Art Life by Louise Martin-Chew was an absorbing and uplifting insight into Fiona’s success in her life and work, against unthinking and significant opposition to Fiona’s right to tell her story.
