Canberra rocks !

If you can, go and see Richard Green's display of landscapes at the National Library of Australia.
Great photography.

Quote:" WILD PLACES: Photographs by Richard Green
Friday, July 11, 2008 - Sunday, November 16, 2008
Visitor Centre, and 4th floor

Richard Green is a photographer who lives in Sydney. Retiring in 1987 from a career developing high tech conventions he now pursues his passion for landscape photography and for helicopters. He and his wife spend weeks at a time using their helicopter to access and then photograph remarkable remote areas of Australia. A benefit provided by the helicopter is that most of his images are of wild places never before photographed.

Green’s works are large colourful panoramic landscapes – usually over 2 metres in length. He merges multiple high resolution digital images to create each large, detailed and compelling photograph. Green is an active conservationist and lover of the bush and is concerned by the politics of commercialisation and the devastating effects of climate change.

Green’s contemporary panoramas will be an exciting counterpoint to the revealing 19th century panoramas of Charles Bayliss being shown in the National Library’s Exhibition Gallery. Both exhibitions are part of Vivid: The National Photography Festival."

enjoy, if you can.
