Profotos Member Biography - Jack Picone

Jack Picone is an Australian born photographer. Over the last fifteen years his images have featured regularly in most international magazines and newspapers Worldwide:his clients include Time, Newsweek, life, Liberation, Der Spiegel, Stern, L'Express, Tempo, Granta, Independent(UK) and The Observer(UK).

Jack's work is enormously diverse, characterized by insights that come from a non-intrusive approach and unhurried time spent with his subjects.

His portfolio includes portraits of artists and achievers, memorable war zone imagery and fascinating studies of tribal cultures. He has documented the drug culture of heroin addicts in the slums of Glasgow, the spirit of Australia's itinerant sheep shearers, the impact of conflict on civilians and children, the ancient rituals of body scarring and stick-fighting among the Nuba people of Sudan, and the day to day life of young Australians living with HIV.

In the 1990's Jack covered eight wars. He achieved some notable news coverage, but was more intent on capturing the plight of ordinary people caught up in the extraordinary violence of theatres in Yugoslavia, Somalia, Rwanda, Palestine, Angola, South Africa and Soviet central Asia. His haunting images of Sarajevo's children in trauma therapy won an American Photographer of the Year award in 1996.

In 1998, Jack's portraiture was recognized with the Australian award for Best Commissioned Magazine Photography.

In 1999 Jack was awarded a first place in the World Press Awards, and picked up another American Photographer of the Year Award for his documentation of the disappearing culture of the dhow boat sailors on the East Coast of Africa.

In the last decade his work has been projected and exhibited at the prestigious Visa d'Or Reportage Festival Awards in Perpignan, France.

Jack's most recent award was in the Fifty Crows award for Documentary Photography in 2003.

Jack's work has been exhibited in major galleries worldwide.

Jack is currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, covering South-East Asia.
