"You probably know Ray Martin as a legend in Australian journalism. Through a career spanning more than 5 decades, he has an unmatched record of Gold and Silver Logies to his credit, plus a host of People’s Choice Awards. In 2011, he was recognised with an Order of Australia for his journalism career and charity work.
But here’s something you may not know …Ray is also a gifted photographer.
Although he’s best-known for his award-winning reporting and interviewing skills, Ray has spent almost as much time taking photographs. It’s been a private love affair that he has only recently made public. “I’ve finally come out of the closet!” he says with a laugh. By way of explanation for keeping this secret, Ray jokingly blames Mahatma Gandhi who once said, “I believe in equality for everyone – except photographers and reporters.” Source: https://kenduncan.com/whats-on/
Ray Martin's World - A Major Photographic Exhibition is on at Ken Duncan Gallery at Erina Heights from 14 to 23 July 2017.
It was absolute pleasure to attend this exhibition on the opening day, to see the displayed photographs in amazing light, and have a chat to Ray and Ken.
