Fresh from premiering in the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art - Dark Heart, The Camera is God (street portrait series) comprises photographs of anonymous people standing on street corners, who seem to emerge and evaporate from the film grain like spectres. Whilst Trent Parke works with documentary photography, he sees himself as a storyteller, pushing the boundaries and potential of the medium and the street.

Trent Parke is the only Australian photographer in the renowned Magnum Photo Agency. He has received numerous awards for his artwork including in January 2014 the inaugural Prudential Eye Award for Photography in Singapore. .
