Portrait of Rupert Mann

Rupert Mann

Rupert Mann is a cultural and built heritage specialist, a writer, and photographer. He has worked with indigenous communities in Australia and remote tribes in Papua New Guinea, has excavated Bronze-Age tombs in Cyprus, and was co-founder of the community-based lobby group Melbourne Heritage Action. 

Rupert has created several photographic works focussing on neglected urban heritage in Australia and South East Asia. Pentridge, where the fascinating nexus between place, people, memory and change is powerfully legible, has intrigued him since childhood. Rupert currently lives in Myanmar, where he works with the Yangon Heritage Trust.
