Namatjira Country, NT:
I have always been inspired by the paintings of famous indigenous artist, Albert Namatjira. I was fascinated by his depiction of great white ghost gums in stark contrast with the rich, red earth of the outback. I had been taking photos in this area for many years – always trying to get the right perspective. Then one day I found this resilient ghost gum clinging to a reef of red rock. Once I had found this location, I visited on many occasions until I finally got the light and conditions that I was hoping for. To me this image is quintessential Australia and I offer it as a tribute to our great indigenous artists who have a profound connection with their land
Australian born photographer Ken Duncan (OAM) captures the rich ochre reds of the outback, the turquoise blue of the sea and shadowed greens of the rainforest.

Ken says “To really know a region you have to spend time absorbing its mood until you begin to relate to its mysterious and ancient rhythms”, says Ken. “I often have to return to a location again and again until I’ve captured the true spirit of the place. In that time spent waiting for the right moment, I have the opportunity to truly connect with the land. It’s amazing what you can learn about a place by just sitting in silence there.”
