Martine Perret

Martine Perret is an internationally awarded photographic artist who was born in Paris, France, and now lives and works from her base in Margaret River. She is known for her startlingly beautiful portrayal of the Western Australian landscape, often employing aerial captures and portraiture to tell important stories of our times.  

Her approach to artistic work is based on a career in photojournalism, including a decade covering UN peacekeeping missions in conflict zones in South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Timor-Leste, and in West Africa where she documented the Ebola crisis.   

Recent projects Ngala Wongga (Come Talk) – Cultural Significance of Languages in the Goldfields and Belong – Language connecting feeling, culture, country exhibition at the WA Museum Boola Bardip, highlight the importance of First Nations languages.
