Photo by Martin Kantor | Author: Richard Guilliatt
Martin Kantor (1960–2015) left an archive of intimate images, a window into his extraordinary work and a testament to his enviable talent. He approached his photography with an emotional intensity that exhilarated those around him. Armed with intelligence, wit and curiosity, he documented the painters, musicians and other artists who emerged during the culturally frenetic eighties.
Kantor saw the world in sharp focus, evident in both his photojournalism for The Australian, and his brilliant portraiture for such magazines as Tension and World Art. He was an adventurous creator, ranging from remaking the rules of rock’n’roll photography to mastering the depiction of contemporary artists in unconventional ways.
