About the exhibition

In this exhibition, Richard Tabaka combines his two passions - photography and flying. On a trip from Ballina to Birdsville in his open cockpit small aircraft, he captures the patterns, beauty and essence of the Queensland Channel Country landscape.

Taken from high above, these photographs of the earth are like abstract paintings. Features of the landscape that are usually recognisable are reduced to “brushstrokes” and dots. The photographs evoke dreams, questions, symbols, and a sense of spirituality and connection to the land.

The exhibition highlights the uniqueness of the iconic Australian outback and reveals the inimitable way that a camera can be used to re-present the traditional landscape artwork.
