RICKY MAYNARD: PORTRAIT OF A DISTANT LAND

Embedded in Ricky Maynard's evocative documentary photographs are the lives and culture of his people, the Ben Lomond and Cape Portland peoples of Tasmania. His starkly rendered images are made in close collaboration with the communities he photographs and form one of the most culturally significant visual records and representations of Aboriginal people in Australia.

Maynard is a self-taught photographer, born in Launceston, Tasmania in 1953, and he is based on Flinders Island in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia. This exhibition brings together 60 images taken over the past two decades. It will be the first time Maynard's work has been presented to Western Australian audiences.
