GARY
HEERY

Gary Heery is one of Australia’s pre-eminent fine art photographers. Born in Sydney, Heery moved to the US in 1974, where he co-founded India America, a magazine chronicling Native American society and culture in Oklahoma. Two years later he moved to Los Angeles where focused on portrait photography, shooting album covers for Madonna, Paul Simon, Roy Orbison, Frank Zappa, Ray Charles, B.B. King and Joe Cocker + portraits of icons in film, art and music for magazines including Life, Esquire, Rolling Stone and Interview.

Returning to Sydney in 1987, Heery worked in advertising and fashion. He was a threetime finalist in the Citi Bank Portrait Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW, a finalist in the National Gallery Portrait Prize and had works selected for the American Photographer Annual and Archibald prizes. Combining his love of portraiture with an ever-present fascination with the natural world, Heery’s work has evolved to focus on flora and fauna. His exhibitions and books include Zoo (1996), Grandiflora (2000), Horses (2009), Winged (2011), Undergrowth (2012) and Gary Heery: Selected Works (2014), Bird (2015) and Birdscape (2021).
