Martine Perret is an awarded photographic artist who lives and works from her base in Margaret River. She is known for her startlingly beautiful portrayal of the Western Australian landscape, often employing aerial captures and portraiture to tell important stories of our times.
Her approach to artistic work is based on a career in photojournalism, including a decade covering UN peacekeeping missions in conflict zones, in South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Timor-Leste and West Africa where she documented the Ebola crisis.
Recent projects Ngala Wongga (Come Talk) – Cultural Significance of Languages in the Goldfields and Belong – Language connecting feeling, culture, country highlight the importance of First Nations’ languages and exemplify Martine’s multi-faceted approach to storytelling in immersive gallery installations which comprise her signature aerial landscapes, portraits, lighting, and soundscapes. Belong was exhibited at WA Museum in 2012/2022 for the UNESCO-led celebration of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages.
