Abstract Earth: Photography by Richard Woldendorp

  • This event finished on 03 August 2008

Curated by John McDonald and R. Ian Lloyd, Abstract Earth: The Photography of Richard Woldendorp showcases the incredible skill of this early pioneer of aerial photography, as it is almost impossible to distinguish whether his untouched photographic works are photographs or indeed painted works of art.

“No other Australian photographer has defined the beauty within our wilderness with such poetic intent and drawn from such a vast canvas. The 81-year-old Dutch-born Australian uncovers vivid landscapes that, for him, abound when seen from altitude.” – Robert McFarlane
