About the Book
A personal account of Australia Day through the eyes and mind of Sydney based photographer Garry Trinh.
Garry Trinh is an artist working with photography. He holds a BA in Psychology and a BA in Visual Communications / Photography and Digital Imaging from the University of Western Sydney. He was the winner of Sydney's premier photography prize Sydney Life in 2007 and won the Auburn Mayoral Photographic Prize in 2009 and 2010. Trinh uses photography to capture unexpected and spontaneous moments in daily life and to express his personal ideas. He is perplexed by the perception of artists as coffee-drinking loafers who work whenever they feel like it. He doesn't even drink coffee. His most recent exhibition Just Heaps Surprised To Be Alive was about a way of looking at the world to see the amazing in the mundane, to find something special in the everyday. He is never bored. Trinh lives and works in Sydney Australia.
