A hundred million years ago an inland sea flowed from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Diamantina district of Western Queensland. What now remains are flat-topped mesas that rise eerily from the desert floor providing a unique environment where twisted arcasias cling to the deep rifts.

Cinematographer Russell Boyd describes Bob Kerseys images of the Diamantina district of Western Queensland as a respectful appreciation to the breathtaking creations of Nature and makes one realise how insignificant our lifetimes are in time, compared to the millions of years of erosion taken to form this wonderful landscape.
The photographs exhibited are contact prints from 12×20 inch negatives in platinum/palladium and silver. Most are the newer Ziatype process hand coated onto 100% rag art paper.

Bob runs photography courses in Sydney at Black Mountain Photographic Workshops. During May he will be running a weekend Ziatype course at Gold Street Studios (Trentham East).
