Australia is a country of diverse landscapes that seem endless. The flat plains of the outback give way to undulating mountain ranges, serpentine rivers and rugged coastlines.
Through striking photographs Out of the Blue explores Australia's natural history and how the continent evolved. From the weathering winds of time to human design, the stunning patterns, colours and vibrancy of the land come to life in Woldendorp's amazing aerial photographs.
About the Author
Richard Woldendorp, born in The Netherlands in 1927, showed from an early age an interest in painting and drawing before studying commercial art. He immigrated to Australia in 1951. Intrigued by the uniqueness of the Australian landscape, he became a landscape photographer with a strong interest in aerial photography, which he feels captures the vastness of the outback best. His love of the Australian landscape has led to extensive travel throughout the country. Richard Woldendorp has won numerous photography awards, held numerous exhibitions, published various books and has photos in public collections across Australia and in America. Amongst his many awards was acceptance into the Society of Advertising, Commercial and Magazine Photographers Hall of Fame, and nomination as Western Australia’s Professional Photographer of the Year for 1998. More recently, Richard Woldendorp was named a State Living Treasure for Western Australia.

I've came to know Richard Woldendorp through f11 magazine (free photo magazine from NZ, go for it!) and was impressed with his photography. He takes his photos from a plane. In this book, he portraits a variety of natural scenarios in Australia.
I was simply amazed for a fw reasons: I love planes and the bird's eye view when you're up there; his pictures are a stunning example of fractal geometry, the geometry of nature, beautiful and meaningful.
It is a beautiful set of Australian imagesthat go well beyond a sunset Uluru picture.
This is a book about how exquisitely beautiful Australia is from the air, as expressed by Richard Woldendorp's High- Art photographs.
