The insightful philosophy of street photography from Trent Park (35 photos)

21 May 2024

Trent Park is one of the most innovative photographers of his generation. He is known for his poetic, often darkly humorous photographs that provide an emotional and psychological portrait of his home country of Australia, from the southern outback to the bustling beaches.

His work, although grounded in reality, falls somewhere between fiction and reality, exploring themes of identity, place and family life.

Park was born in 1971 and grew up in Newcastle, New South Wales. He started taking photographs when he was about 12 years old, using his mother's Pentax Spotmatic and the family laundry room as a darkroom. He began his career as a photojournalist and in 2007 became the first Australian full member of the photo agency Magnum Photos.

Park's work has been exhibited and is in major collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Art Gallery of South Australia and more.

In 2015, The Art Gallery of South Australia hosted a solo exhibition, The Black Rose, which featured photographs, videos, texts and books. Park has also published four monographs.
