Greg Weight

b. 1945

Photographer Greg Weight opened his studio in the late 1960s and quickly gained a reputation for having a progressive eye; photographing objects, personalities and landscapes. He has captured portraits of some of Australia’s most significant artists including Arthur Boyd, Margaret Olley and Brett Whiteley. His photographs have been exhibited at Old Parliament House, the Brett Whiteley Studio and the National Portrait Gallery. Weight was awarded a residency at Hill End in NSW in 1999 and 2017 as well as the Citigroup Australian Photographic Portrait Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in 2003. In 2004 a book of Weight’s photographs titled ‘Australian Artists’ was released, accompanied by an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. Weight’s work is held by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra; the National Library of Australia, Canberra and the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney.
