Past Exhibitions at Kluge-Ruhe

Ricky Maynard: Portrait of a Distant Land


April 8 – August 14, 2011
The exhibition Portrait of a Distant Land comprised two bodies of photographs by Ricky Maynard (Cape Portland and Ben Lomond people, Tasmania); a collection of five portraits of elders of the Wik-Klakan people (2000), and excerpts from his Portrait of a Distant Land project (2005). Portrait of a Distant Land served as a satellite exhibition for Charlottesville’s LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph.

Born in Launceston, Tasmania in 1953, Maynard is a self-taught documentary photographer whose images of Indigenous Tasmanians have helped to establish their identity as living people with a unique culture and history.
