Dale Frank for Art Collector

My portrait of Australian contemporary artist Dale Frank in issue 81 of Art Collector magazine. He’s pictured in his house in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales with one of his two wolfhounds (I think this one is Douglas). There’s a story about me and the house that Dale lives in. Buy me a beer one day and I’ll tell it to you.


2017 National Photographic Portrait Prize

Originally titled ‘Lucinda with stung eye, 2016’ I was honoured that my portrait was a finalist in this year’s National Photographic Portrait Prize.  Intended as an homage to Sally Mann’s ’Damaged Child, 1984  I didn’t want to make the connection between the two works too obvious. Only later did I read Mann’s memoir Hold Still and learn that her work was in itself an homage to Dorothea Lange’s Damaged Child, Shacktown, Elm Grove, Oklahoma 1936. If exhibited again I shall show it with the title Damaged Child 2016.

The exhibition runs from 1 April 2017 to 17 June 2017 at the National Portrait Gallery of Australia.
