Michael Garbutt is a photographer, storyteller and sometimes educator from Sydney. His work often ruminates on the power of photography as a storytelling medium, using conventional literary frameworks as a basis for creating image-based narratives.
His first self-published monograph, Far Kurnell, was released in 2020. His work has been recognised with a variety of awards, including Centre for Contemporary Photography Best Landscape, Staff Pick and Best Photobook Design. Additionally, his work was selected as a finalist in the Moran Photographic Prize in 2018.
When he isn’t out shooting, he can often be found discussing photographic practices with high school and university students.
