Story By Jessica Owers

Richard Green has the means to go where few men have gone before him, and that is a very useful thing for a photographer. Touching his EC 135 helicopter down amid the vast, relentless outcrops of the Kimberleys, or the lonely heights of a moody Tasmanian landscape, he has strayed right into a photographer’s dream, and his work reflects that very sublime privilege. Richard began photographing the natural environment more than 40 years ago.

As a result of his work and his travels, he has developed a lasting belief in the preservation of the wild environment.
