2018 Finalists

Lee GRANT

Artist statement: Allan Clarke is an investigative journalist and producer at the ABC. He is a Muruwari/Gomeroi man from Bourke in far-western New South Wales and was previously the presenter of The Point on NITV as well as the Indigenous Affairs reporter for BuzzFeed News. Clarke also spent several years as a senior reporter for SBS TV's Indigenous news and current affairs program, Living Black.

I met Clarke when documenting a story on the Mark Haines cold case which he had been investigating over the last five years. He struck me as a considered, serious young man, and a role model for all Australians.

This portrait is part of an ongoing series titled The land of Oz.
