Ricky Maynard is a leading Indigenous photographer who lives and works on Flinders Island in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and the Australian mainland.

Since the late 1980s he has documented his people, from the renowned series The Moonbird People (1985-1988) which depicts a Tasmanian Aboriginal community during the annual mutton-bird season, to No More Than What You See (1993) which documented Indigenous people incarcerated in the South Australian prison system. The photo series Urban Diary (1997) captures the urban experience of Aboriginal people living in St Kilda, Melbourne and he portrays Wik Elders from Queensland in Returning to Places that Name Us (2000/01).

Closer to home, In the Footsteps of Others (2003) documents important cultural sites for his people, the Big River and Ben Lomond tribes on the north east coast of Tasmania. In addition, Portrait of a Distant Land (2005/08) looks at the people and landscapes of the Bass Strait islands.

Ricky Maynard is the recipient of a number of prestigious awards, including the Mother Jones International Documentary Award (1994), an Australian Human Rights Award (1997) and The Kate Challis RAKA Award (2003).
