From his aerial vantage point he has photographed, with great skill and precision, shifting tides, moving sands, the reflective waterways, roads, farmed regions, forests and more. Seen together, these powerful images reveal the incredible beauty and diversity of this country. As such, Woldendorp has created a unique and important body of work that challenges how we experience and understand our place within the Australian landscape. By opening up this exchange, his photographs also provide space for a meditation on the critical relationship between the human and natural worlds as we shape ourselves in dynamic concert.

Abstract Earth is curated by John McDonald and R. Ian Lloyd.
