Sixty of Woldendorp's most memorable aerial landscapes that have the power and presence of large abstract paintings.
In recent years, the book The Earth from the Air by French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand has become an international best-seller, while an exhibition of his aerial landscapes has toured the world. But before Arthus-Bertrand ever picked up a camera, Dutch-born Richard Woldendorp (born1927), had already begun to stake a claim as Australia's foremost landscape photographer.
Woldendorp's first aerial landscapes date from the 1960s. Over the following four decades he has developed a substantial body of work that has featured in numerous books and exhibitions.
This long overdue exhibition surveys sixty of Woldendorp's most memorable aerial landscapes that have the power and presence of large abstract paintings.
