Western Australians are great to be around - they are generally adventurous, hard working, down to earth, fun-loving people. Theirs is a wild frontier land where excellent opportunities still abound for anyone willing to work hard. For a photographer, WA is paradise, with an absolute wealth of stunning places to capture and many hidden treasures still to be discovered. In this latest publication, Ken Duncan has teamed up with his good friend, WA resident and landscape photographer, Steve Fraser.

Their shared passion for photography - and for this remarkable state - are beautifully revealed in this magnificent new book, The Wild Frontier - Western Australia. They have travelled extensively throughout Australia's largest state, collecting iconic images from the seven regions of WA - from the rugged gorges of the Kimberley and the rich red hues of the Pilbara to the azure waters of the South, they have captured a wonderful collection of diverse images in a variety of photographic formats.

About the Author

Ken Duncan OAM, is recognised as one of the world's leading landscape photographers. With every new release of Limited Edition Prints he delights long-time collectors and new fans alike with his own inimitable style of landscape photography.

Ken has worked on several international book projects in such exotic locations as Malaysia, China and Hollywood and for years was the preferred photographer for Australian rock band Midnight Oil. His first solo book was published in 1987, and he later went on to become a publisher in his own right. Since 1992, over 30 individual titles have been released under the Ken Duncan Panographs trademark.

Although Ken prefers the panoramic format - "that's the way we see", he says - he is well versed in a multitude of formats and media. He has even dabbled in cinematography and would like to do more with this medium in the future. He can turn his hand to any type of photography - from portraits to landscapes to 3-D and everything in between - and produce consistently creative results.

    This book makes an excellent gift - particularly for overseas friends or those just visiting Western Australia. It captures many 'classic' Western Australian landmarks and sites, in 'picture-perfect' form.
