Jack Picone

For the past 30 years Jack Picone has covered news, wars and major social issues in Asia, Africa and Europe.

He is a co-founder of Australia’s REPORTAGE photography festival, the founder of REPORTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS (a series of documentary photography workshops in Asia) and a member of the collective SOUTH. He completed a PhD in Documentary Photography at Griffith University in Queensland Australia, and lectures in photography at universities in Australia and Hong Kong.

Picone’s training in photography was in using black and white film and mastering traditional darkroom print-making. It is a passion that has never faded thanks to the medium’s unrivalled capacity for both subtlety and drama. As legendary photographer Robert Frank expressed it in 1951: “Black and white are the colours of photography. To me they symbolise the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

Born in Australia, Picone is currently based in Bangkok and Hong Kong.
