Robert McFarlane is one of Australia's great photographers. During a career spanning several decades, he has specialised in social issues and theatre. His lens has captured Charles Perkins, Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, Lloyd Rees, and many other important people.


Robert’s photos possess a disarmingly open and honest approach to his subjects, which lend the works an air of timeless integrity. He has an eye for the moment, and an intuitive sense of light, space and the interation of his subject with its surrounds.


Robert McFarlane's works are held nationally in many public and private collections. Please see for Robert's website for information and images of his work.
