Lake Eyre aerial photography showcased in Sydney
A group of some of Australia's best fine art landscape photographers have joined forces to produce a stunning exhibition and photo book showcasing aerial images of iconic inland waterway, Lake Eyre.
Four members of The Light Collective, photographers Adam Williams, Luke Austin, Ignacio Palacios, and Paul Hoelen will be featuring the resulting work Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre Interpretations from the Air in Sydney this week.
First formed in 2014, the visual artists involved are becoming leaders in their field and are renowned for their progressive, interpretive and artistic approach to image making.
When you take to the air its [Lake Eyre] true complexity, variety and immensity is breathtakingly revealed. Salt deposits, eroded channels and inlets, layers of sediment and algal blooms provide endlessly subtle variations of texture, lines, pattern and colour. (The Light Collective, 2016)
Photographers in The Light Collective initially came together to inspire each other to push the boundaries of their craft. By combining their considerable resources and abilities they have been able to take on large and ambitious ventures such as the RGB Australia Project.
The media release for the book release describes it as "A sensual and striking visual narrative of interpretive aerial imagery from one of the most alluring regions of the Australian interior – Lake Eyre, now known as Kati Thanda".
The exhibition will be open at Gallery ll, 2 Danks Street, Waterloo from November 3-12 (open Tues-Sat 11am-6pm) with an official opening on Thurs November 3 from 6pm and featuring special guest, acclaimed photographer Ken Duncan.
Pre-order copies of the book can be ordered online for $39.95 at: http://www.thelightcollective.com.au/rgb-book/eyre-coffee-table-book
