Mick Richards Above and Below
This beautifully illustrated catalogue documents the career of professional photographer Mick Richards. With essays by Djon Mundine, Stephen Hobson, Dai Smith, Lydia Miller, Erin McFadyen, Michael Aird and Warraba Weatherall. The book includes over 200 photographs, selected from more than half a million film and digital images from 1984 to 2021. Mick’s remarkable social documentary photography has taken him to Asia, South America, the Pacific and Europe. His photographs expose social codes, rituals and traditions. They reveal community leadership and resilience; unspoken power by exposing colonial realities and dysfunction; they highlight social-cultural acceptances on sports grounds, in clubs, theatres and galleries, they cover the field.
