I find the untamed character of the Australian landscape, in its ironic sameness and uniformity, immensely and strangely attractive to portray. Dead trees, broken and ragged branches, and scraggly fibres sprawling across eroded rock forms, and the repetitive nature of the thin, sparse and fine vegetal cover dispersing the strong sunlight into softer shadows and pastel colours. Supposedly iconic of Australia, but I’m really curious to know if there’s another part of the world that looks similar to this.
