Australia’s father of photography Max Dupain 1988
“Without doubt, Peter’s work has drama. His sensitive eye has carefully considered this environment and like all serious photographers he has not just reacted to it, he has over-reacted to this turbulent land, resulting in pictures which express essences and not generalities, a concentration of vital elements in preference to a broad pattern of component parts. This means intensity and, of course, drama.”
Photographer Ken Duncan 2003
“Time really tells who the true masters are and he will go down as one of them. The power of his images are going to live on for generations. He was one of the greatest photographers we’ve produced. His lightning work and some of his other shots are timeless pieces. In life, there are not many who can transcend death, but his images have and his images will. Time really tells who the true masters are and he will go down as one of them. The power of his images is going to live on for generations. There are two sorts of photographers – creators and imitators. Peter was a creator. Jarver’s transparency files are likely to be ‘full of treasures’ and the value of his limited edition prints will sky rocket. Peter Jarver’s work is going to be traded as a commodity one day. But if people in Australia don’t get what is here now, it will all go overseas.”
Northern Territory Chief Minister Clare Martin 2003
“Peter was a man who brought the Territory wet season to us who live there, but also to the rest of Australia. With his patience, skills and extraordinary technique, he captured the elusive beauty, the sound and light show, that is the Top End in the monsoon. We face the loss of a great artist, who did so much to bring attention to the beauty and excitement of the storms of the Top End. But in a way, Peter will share a kind of immortality and not only through his works, which remain with us. When the wet season comes to the Top End and the lightning rips across the sky, illuminating the purple thunderheads over the sea, this, above all else, will be Peter Jarver’s lasting memorial.”
Queensland Tourism 2003
“His invaluable contribution to promoting Australia and the paradise of Tropical North Queensland will live on through this extraordinary oeuvre of artwork.”
