In 2018 Matthew Thorne was invited by Australian Director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth) to create a photography project adjacent to the making of his feature film ‘True History Of The Kelly Gang’.
This limited edition photo book is the result of that project: A collection of photos, poems and essays on the iconic Australian Ned Kelly story. A work that documents the most recent telling of the iconic colonial Australian legend of Ned Kelly.
Additional text contributed by George MacKay and Paul Greenaway OAM.
Photo collective represents photographers, advocates, educators and curators working towards the collective goal of celebrating and contributing to the changing ecology of Australian photography. We achieve this through award recognition, publications, exhibitions, community engagement initiatives and educational programs.
Photo Collective acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land and waters on which we live, work and travel. As people who seek meaning and knowledge through storytelling, we recognise that the First Peoples of this land have been doing so for over 60,000 years. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
