Ricky Maynard

b.1953 :

Ricky Maynard was born in Launceston, Tasmania in 1953 and lives and works on Flinders Island in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia. Maynard has built a career photographing and documenting the histories of indigenous communities, primarily in and around his home in Tasmania.

Largely self-taught, Maynard was awarded a Commonwealth grant in 1990 which enabled him to undertake a year of study at the International Center for Photography in New York. Maynard has also been awarded the Australian Human Rights Award for Photography (1997) and the Mother Jones International Documentary Award (1994).

In 2009 the MCA presented a major exhibition of Maynard’s work_ Portrait of a Distant Land_, accompanied by a major publication, which then toured around Australia and to a number of international venues. Maynard’s work has been collected by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney and the National Library of Australia, Canberra.
