Steve Parish has spent over thirty years exploring Australia with his camera. 'Australia The Gift' is the result.
This remarkable book contains images selected from hundreds of thousands of photographs showing the unique plants and animals of the continent and the wild places in which they live. Steve's cameras capture the immensity of a land that stretches from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific, from the Timor Sea to the Southern Ocean. He has travelled the arid Red Centre and the highest snow-covered Alps, the remote Kimberley and Tasmania's turbulent rivers, recording Australia's wildlife and its myriad habitats in all moods and weathers.
Where many pictorial records stop short at the water's edge, 'Australia The Gift' takes you beneath the sea as well, to the underwater world which Steve has made his own. Here is an adventure and art and a rare understanding of the creatures of the Australian wilderness.
This is a book for all who wish to experience the true nature of Australia. The pictures are superb; the words that accompany them offer rare insight into the perceptions and emotions of a man who has made the recording of Australia on film and in words his lifetime obsession.
'Australia The Gift' is a joyous celebration of a unique continent in all its variety. Open it's covers and discover Australia.
