Martin Sharp His Life and Times

Author: Joyce Morgan
$34.99(AUD)  inc GST

Martin Sharp was one of Australia's most iconic and internationally influential culture makers of the late 20th Century. He was charismatic and unconventional, unique and surprising. His images defined the spirit of a generation and then a city...In this richly told and beautifully written biography, Joyce Morgan not only captures the loneliness of a privileged childhood, the heady days of Oz, the swirling world of creativity and energy that was Swinging London in the 1960s, but a vitality that embodied the times. And then there was the Yellow House, Martin's passion for restoring Luna Park and his lifelong obsession with Tiny Tim. There was no one like Martin Sharp...When he died he was described as a stranger in a strange land who left behind a trail of stardust.
