Gary Lee

Gary Lee is a Larrakia artist with affinities to the Wadaman and Karajarri peoples. Since 1993, he has embarked on a photographic project focusing on male portraiture which is the basis of his art practice. His portraiture examines the nexus of culture, ethnicity and masculinity, particularly among everyday boys/men. For the first decade of his practice, he photographed largely in Nepal and India, where the men there reminded him of Aboriginal men in Darwin. His portraiture has come to include Aboriginal and non-Indigenous men. His work has been published in books, art journals and magazines in Australia and abroad. 

Gary Lee’s work has been collected by major institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin, and the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth.
