Brett Martin, B.A. (Library Science), Charles Sturt University
Brett Martin has been a colleague for many years and is a strong photographic artist. This new venture is an adept and poignant, yet quite unsentimental, small film of his father’s documentation of his childhood. A theme pursued by others, in many forms, however few achieve the sense of place and the essence of a childhood that is found in this work. In 2014 he published a novel, Marion, which is a strong investigation of life in early rural Tasmania.
Marion, Oak Publishing; Tasmania, 2014.
This is a new group of talented photographic image makers who have joined into a cooperative for the presentation of diverse and innovative work that is aimed at projects that reflect a contemporary art base that is of social importance and cultural relevance. Exhibitions began in 2014 and will continue along with projects of significance.
