Claire Martin got her start as a social worker and turned her efforts towards her camera. And it shows. Her nitty gritty subjects and intensely intimate reportage of squatters and junkies won her the Magnum Foundation 2010 Inge Morath award. Her work meshes between fine art, documentary and contemporary photography.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
