Incredible images of WA’s most remote and picturesque locations have been captured by two renowned Australian landscape photographers.
Iconic photographer Ken Duncan worked alongside Kalamunda-based landscape photographer Steve Fraser to put together a photo book, The Wild Frontier, which showcases the beauty of WA, from the rugged gorges of the Kimberley to the azure waters of the south.
Fraser, who grew up in the Pilbara, said most of the about 160 photographs in the book had been shot in the 12 months to July this year.
He said he and Duncan would have travelled about 60,000km around the state while shooting.
“We wanted to cover every region from right up at Mitchell Falls right down to in the bight near Eucla,” Fraser said.
“I think the book shows how amazingly diverse WA is.
“When you look at stunning Mitchell Falls in the Kimberley, the amazing white-sand beaches down near Esperance, out to Kalgoorlie, the wildflowers in full bloom in the Mid West… you’ve just got so many diverse types of landscapes.
“WA is enormous and it’s so vast. It has some amazing pockets.”
WA Governor Malcolm McCusker wrote the forward for The Wild Frontier, which includes details on the cameras, equipment and settings used to capture each shot at the back.
All proceeds from the book, which will be launched at the Government House grand ballroom on November 29, will go to the Walk a While Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation helping to get indigenous youths living in central Australia involved in contemporary arts.
Duncan is one of the world’s leading landscape photographers and was presented with an OAM in 2009.
The pair met in 2005 and they have worked on several projects together since.
