Martin Kantor Archive

For nigh on 20 years Martin Kantor cut a swathe through
Australian photographic portraiture, finding remarkable ways to capture his subjects in a unique and creative fashion.

We recently published Photo by Martin Kantor.   The 86 photos featured in both book and and the exhibition are portraits Kantor took between the late 1970s and 2002, predominantly featuring the then-burgeoning but now well known identities in the field of Australian culture from the iconic 1980s and 90s – the artists, gallerists, musicians, politicians, and other well known subjects, including: Howard Arkley, David Larwill, Bob Hawke, Jana Wendt, Molly Meldrum, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, Mirka Mora, Iggy Pop, Paul Kelly, Split Enz, Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard, Grace Jones, Mark E. Smith, and more….

The book is available at all good book shops and through BRIGHTSPACE.  The images in the book were exhibited at BRIGHTSPACE and most are available as posthumous prints.
