Australian photographer Rennie Ellis (1940-2003), manifested his lust for life in his incredibly raw and candid images of the 70s and 80s that perfectly capture the heyday of Rock and Roll rebellion, sexual experimentation and tomfoolery. In a career that spanned forty years he avidly photographed people from all walks of life doing all manner of things. His legacy is a vast collection of photographs that celebrate life. This scarce catalogue for his posthumous retrospective exhibition held at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, in 2009 brings together almost two hundred images, a fraction of the extensive body of work that Ellis produced during his prolific life.
