Martine Perret is a photographic artist who was born in Paris, 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, Timor-Leste and 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.
In December 2022 Martine was honoured to travel to Paris with Wardandi Elders Vivian Brockman Webb, Mitchella Hutchins and artist Roly Skender to launch the UNESCO International Decade of Indigenous Languages with the presentation of the collaborative audio-visual work Wannang Biridge (Light of the Peppermint Tree), which was originally created at The Farm Margaret River, following a residency with SymbioticA on photomicrography at CELLCentral in the school of Anatomy and Human Biology at The University of Western Australia.
Martine will launch her new audiovisual and photographic work “Djanga – Spirit” in collaboration with Wardandi Elders Vivian Brockman Webb and Mitchella Hutchins with artist Roly Skender.
