Photo by Martin Kantor

He seemed to be always at watch, scanning the immediate environs for anything that might make for an interesting image, anything that was out of sync with `the norm' Martin Kantor 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, â ¨evident in both his photojournalism forâ ¨ TheAustralian, 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. Martin Kantor (1960-2015) left an archive of intimate images, a window into his extraordinary work and a testamentâ ¨ to his enviable talent.
