Ricky Maynard: Portrait of a Distant Land

Ricky Maynard: Portrait of a Distant Land is a major survey of photographic works by documentary photographer Ricky Maynard, encompassing more than two decades of the artist's practice.



The exhibition features 60 evocative and captivating photographic works, drawn from six bodies of work, documenting a broad range of themes and issues facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today. It includes photographs of sites significant to Maynard's people: ranging from serenely beautiful landscapes which follow the song lines, tribal movements and historical displacement routes of his ancestors, to the confrontational and emotionally-charged images of Indigenous people incarcerated in the South Australian prison system.

Born in Launceston, Tasmania in 1953, Maynard is a self-taught documentary photographer now based on Flinders Island in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia.

This project has been supported by the Australia Council’s New Australian Stories Initiative.
