Artist Dani Marti Dani Marti for Art Collector

Spanish-Australian contemporary visual artist Dani Marti for issue 77 of Art Collector magazine. I photographed Dani in a few locations close to his home near Cessnock, NSW.


The brief stipulated I not shoot Dani in his studio nor with his work, so we explored his neighbourhood for a while (Dani not favouring a more natural setting). This is actually outside his studio, when the light was getting low. The grill on the window-bars ties in nicely with the repetitive elements of Dani's works that are made from rope and the windows themselves are synonymous of the scale of those works.

The State Library of New South Wales recently acquired eleven images that I shot in 2010 to record the topography and architecture of the Barangaroo precinct in Sydney at a unique moment when the heavy maritime industry had left but before any redevelopment of the site had taken place. The works are now held by the library for research & exhibition uses. The library acquired the images as high resulution scans, performed by library staff, of my original 6x7cm black & white negatives.
