by Marty Lum
Using just a phone camera, artist Marty Lum discovered peace through photographing trees in the dark on nightly walks throughout a long, painful illness. Night Trees explores an alternative perspective of familiar places less often experienced, and represents a technical study of the limitations of photography when there is little or low light intensity. It is a metaphor for the times when we are cast into darkness, and find within it a positive and enlightening experience.
Marty Lum’s career has spanned diverse domains, including medicine, search and rescue, private business and as a government bureaucrat. His core artistic medium is photography. Lum’s photography of the 2000 Olympic Games is in the collection of the National Library of Australia, and he has been a finalist in numerous photographic prizes.
