About Martine Perret

Martine was born in Paris, raised in Bordeaux and moved to Sydney in 1997. She began her professional career in Sydney in 1999 working as a freelance photographer and worked at the photo desk at The Australian Financial Review. Her interest in photojournalism took her to Timor-Leste in 2003 where she developed a working relationship with the United Nations. For the next decade Martine covered UN peacekeeping missions in conflict zones such as Burundi, the Democratic Republic of The Congo, and most recently in South Sudan and West Africa (documenting the Ebola crisis response). Living in Margaret River, Western Australia since 2014, Martine self-published her first book, a series of aerial views of the South West region titled Margaret River Region FROM ABOVE. In July 2015, Martine initiated a new project flying over Western Australia’s Goldfields. This series of photographs is called Gungurrunga Ngawa (Look Above). These images were exhibited in October 2015 and are part of the broader body of work Ngala Wongga (Come Talk), a project documenting the speakers of the Goldfields, their connection to the land and the cultural significance of Australia’s endangered languages. Ngala Wongga was inaugurated at the Goldfields Arts Centre in Kalgoorlie on 20 September 2016. The exhibition toured with ART ON THE MOVE for 18 months in WA and at the Australian Embassy in Paris for the launch of activities for the International Year of Indigenous Languages in 2019. Ngala Wongga book has been recently published with a multimedia link at the Australian National Commission for UNESCO’s website as a legacy work. Martine recently started a new project Wuyurpa collaborating with Indigenous women – speakers of Languages from Western Australia and Northern territory. Martine has a large collection of aerial photographs and is also available for commissions.*If you are interested in larger sizes for limited edition prints other than those listed please contact Martine through Art Lovers Australia. All my images are available in various sizes and I am happy to discuss any specific requirements.
