I am really excited to have the release of Fragile - my latest book later this month.
It has been 4 years of work, covering every continent on the planet and over 25 countries. The book is about discovering the incredible beauty of the our planet, the adventure of visiting some of the worlds most remote locations and the inspiration that comes from experiencing these untouched wilderness areas.
During this time I have spent time alone in Antarctica, lived with the Masai in Africa and climbed high in the Andes. The people I have meet and the amazing beauty I experienced all have one thing in common - Fragile. These locations are delicately balanced and the challenge is to see what this generation does to ensure we leave a positive legacy for the next generation. Climate change and ever growing industrialisation are impacting our planet at an alarming rate, Fragile will highlight what the planet is supposed to look like, beautiful, inspiring and untouched.
I hope you get a chance to check out the book.
It has been a real privilege working with the team at Australian Geographic to produce their flagship calendar for 2014.
They have been such fun to work with and are an extremely professional team. It was great to arriving home from a 6 week shot to see the finished product on my desk. The calendar is a collection of landscape images from every state in Australia and also includes an image from Macquarie Island in the Australian Sub Antarctic. A couple of my personal favourite images made the cut and are part of the calendar.
