Named one of Australia’s ‘living treasures’, the late Jeff Carter is considered one of this country’s finest ever photographers.

Devoted to the art of black and white, Jeff has been capturing the faces and lives of everyday Australians for over fifty years. His photos hang in the Australian National Gallery and other state galleries across the country. Retrospective is a collection of memorable images in his career as a photojournalist. Capturing the human face of Australia among landscapes of cultural significance – the city, the beach and the bush –Jeff Carter rejects the popular focus on celebrities and instead showcases the battlers who helped shape our nation. The Herald photography critic, Robert McFarlane said of Jeff  ‘as a chronicler of Australia’s human landscape I think Jeff Carter is one of the greats, and his body of work is certainly an invaluable part of our historical record’.
