Rare view of wilderness

PHOTOGRAPHER and helicopter pilot Richard Green has been able to capture on film some of the most beautiful and untouched places Australia has to offer.

And he's bringing his unique images to Rockhampton's Art Gallery next month.

From February 17 to April 1, the photographer's exhibition, Remote and Wild, will be on show at Rockhampton.

Richard has been exploring Australia's wildest places for more than 20 years.

Most of the destinations he visits are not accessible by four-wheel-drive.

Many have never previously been photographed.

His exhibition has proven to be a big drawcard at the Ipswich Art Gallery, where more than 17,000 people have walked through the doors.

A scientist by training, Richard said he took full advantage of digital technology to create multi-stitched and highly detailed panoramas.

"Most span a visual field of at least 180 degrees, for example all that you would see with the naked eye," he said.

"The large exhibition prints, some four metres long, are intended to give the viewer a sense of actually being there by his side when the photo was taken."
