a few of the legends
Peter Adams undertook to photograph the legends of photography back in the ’80s. The result is an extraordinary collection of images and portraits of legendary photographers. This will, without a doubt, become one of the key photographic books of the decade. A monumental achievement following 38 years of relentless effort. The book is in production, with an expected November release. We will have a pre-production copy at the Gallery on the night.
Winton-based photographer and writer John Elliott has been taking portraits of the stars of Australian Country Music for over 30 years including Keith Urban, Troy Cassar-Daley and many more. But perhaps his most famous association is with the great Slim Dusty. During this time John was founding editor of Australian Country Music Magazine and wrote a weekly music column for Australasian Post Magazine. Since 1980 John has been self-employed as a writer, photographer and documentary maker, mostly concerned with Australian culture, the bush and music. His book is the portrait of an Iconic town miles beyond the black stump.
