About the Artist

Jack Picone is the recipient of several of photography’s most prestigious international awards. These include the World Press Awards, the U.S. Photographer of The Year Awards (POY), the Mother Jones/IFDP Grant for Social Documentary Photography and a UNESCO Documentary Photography Award. His work has been exhibited in major galleries and venues worldwide, including the National Portrait Gallery in Australia and at the prestigious Visa d’Or Reportage Festival in France.

For the past 25 years Picone has covered wars and major social issues in Asia, Africa and Europe. He is a co-founder of Australia’s REPORTAGE photography festival, the founder of Communiqué (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.

His work is held in collections at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, The Australian War Memorial and The State Library of New South Wales, Australia.

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.
