Gary

I was born in Ashburton, New Zealand, and was educated as an political economist at Canterbury University in Christchurch, New Zealand. I worked in Wellington and Auckland as an economist before leaving to live in Melbourne, Australia.

In Melbourne I worked on the trams for several years whilst I studied photography at the Photographic Studies College in City Rd, Southbank.

I shifted to Adelaide, South Australia, had a studio and darkroom in Bowden. I photographed Bowden in the 1980s prior to its gentrification. I studied visual art and philosophy at the Flinders University of South Australia, eventually gaining a PhD in philosophy. After working as an academic I became a policy wonk in Canberra for several years.

Now I am a blogger and photographer. I’ve given up the chemical darkroom because of the effect of chemicals on my body, and I struggle with the Indesign and Photoshop post-processing software.

I currently live in  Victor Harbor with Suzanne and  three standard poodles called Ari, Maleko and Kayla. This Abstract Photography book was published by Moon Arrow Press in 2016.

  1. Gary – I just saw a photo of yours in the Atkins Newsletter.

    I’m having another show this month – drop me an email and I’ll keep you up to date, or just get details from the website (will be updating over the next couple of weeks)

    cheers
