Australian Minescapes features a series of compelling and tactile large scale photographs of Australian mine sites taken from the air. From this perspective – through the eye of a master photographer – what some see as scars upon the landscape become extraordinary images of beauty and sensuality.
This sumptuous, large format, casebound book also features a series of accessible and insightful essays on Burtynsky’s work, on photography and Australian landscape and art. These writers and critics include Ric Spencer, Michael Mitchell, Helen Ennis and Alasdair Foster.
