Trent Parke is one of the most innovative photographers of his generation. He is known for his poetic, often darkly humorous photography that offers an emotional and psychological portrait of his home country of Australia – from the southern outback to its busy beaches. Though rooted in documentary, his works sit between fiction and reality, exploring themes of identity, place, and family life.

This contact sheet contains photos of Summer Rain in Sydney, Australia. 1998.

Trent Parke joined Magnum Photos in 2007.
