Capturing the Individual: Portraits of Papua New Guinea : Renowned photographer Stephen Dupont talks about his confronting contemporary experiences in Papua New Guinea Other events...
Renowned photographer Stephen Dupont talks about his confronting contemporary experiences in Papua New Guinea at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, UWA on Wednesday 27 March 2013.

Dupont’s images have received international acclaim, described as ‘hauntingly beautiful photographs of fragile cultures and marginalised peoples’.

In 2004, Dupont gained access to a ‘Raskol’ community in PNG’s capital, Port Moresby. Raskols are young gang members renowned for their violent acts, such as armed robberies, rape and carjackings. In a makeshift studio set-up, Dupont documented these individuals behind the facelessness of gang warfare, resulting in the exhibition Raskols.
