From the mid-80s - 2012, ROSE FARRELL (1949 - 2015) and GEORGE PARKIN (1949 - 2012) worked collaboratively pushing the boundaries of photographic portraiture.  Their use of often disturbing subject matter, elaborate sets and bizarre scenarios (usually constructed in their own home) gained them international acclaim and firmly established them as among Australia’s most radical photographic artists.

Farrell and Parkin are represented in national and international collections, including: Polaroid Corporation, Polaroid International Collection, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA; Musee de la Photographie a Charleroi, Charleroi , Belgium; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra;  Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Artbank, Sydney; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; and the Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne.
