Roger Garwood, who has a long and distinguished international career as a photo-journalist, is currently working on projects related to traditional Australian lifestyles, including the cattle, fishing and mining industries.

Before emigrating to Australia in 1975, Roger worked for eleven years on the staff of Paris Match covering major international news stories.

Since his arrival in Australia, Roger has worked on assignments for European and American magazines including The New York Times, the London Sunday Times, Paris Match and National Geographic.

From 1983-87 he worked almost exclusively on the America’s Cup activities in Australia, the USA and Europe for Newsweek magazine; as well as being the official photographer to America’s Cup Defence. Since 1988, Roger has published books related to the Australian lifestyle through Plantagenet Press, which he founded.

His work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library, the National Gallery of Victoria, and The Art Gallery of Western Australia.

The opening of his exhibition at Gallery East in June 2004 marked the launch of Portfolio II ‘Australians’ a collaborative work with Trish Ainslie of 10 photographs.
