Brad Rimmer

Brad Rimmer is a photographer who works on long-term projects of portraiture, landscape and social documentation. He seeks to uncover the human within, often alienating everyday environs. 

Working within the fine line of art and documentary photography, Brad uses his artistic practice to probe at the essence of rural Australia and the emotional impact of the natural landscape upon individual psyches.

Brad’s work has been shown in numerous international solo exhibitions, including the Perth International Arts Festival, the Pingyao and the Lianzhou International Photo Festivals in China, the Brighton Photo Biennial in the United Kingdom, Kaunas Photo in Lithuania, Photoforum PasquArt in Switzerland. 

In 2009 Brad was awarded a Mid Career Fellowship from the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts in order to publish ‘Silence: the West Australian Wheatbelt’, which was regarded by state gallery curator Robert Cook as ‘one of the most important bodies of images about Western Australia made to date’, with all 30 works in the series acquired by the Art Gallery of Western Australia. 

Brad’s works are also held in numerous national and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Wesfarmers, Artbank, St John of God Health Care and Murdoch University.
