“Artist frames faces of transition” – Stephen Dupont portraits

PORT Moresby is one of the world’s most dangerous cities, but photojournalist and war correspondent Stephen Dupont found it a rich source for his latest portraiture.

The Sydney-based photographer, who has covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Rwanda and been published in Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, chose to document detribalisation in Papua New Guinea’s crime-ridden capital after he was awarded a Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography in 2010.

Portraits captured on 4×5, exhibition to come to Australia later this year.
