Gary Sauer-Thompson is an Adelaide -based photographer documenting the contemporary urbanscape and landscape. Favoring a blend of spontaneity and photographic deliberation Gary primarily utilizes an array of traditional, film-based equipment to explore the topographics of his urban and seaside neighbourhood.
Sauer-Thompson originally trained as an economist, graduating with a M.Com from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1969. In 1990, he graduated with a PhD [philosophy] Flinders University of South Australia. He was inspired to think of doing photography after seeing the work produced by artist and teacher Les Walkling in the late 1970s. This was when Gary was studying photography at the Photographic Studies College in Melbourne.
