Forged through self-determination, experimentation and an unflinching work ethic, Dave Laslett has developed and refined a unique style of documentary photography. Utilising a converted military troop carrier as a regional base, Dave has travelled throughout South Australia, the APY Lands, surrounding communities as well as Port Augusta creating portraits and historical documentation primarily focused on the First Peoples people of Australia.
In the past few years Laslett has been developing his own fine arts practice, a unique blend of site-specific installation, unique lighting techniques and photography. His life however is an extension of his practice, living in isolation, close to the land using only what he needs.
