Imagined as a celebration of the particular beauty of Australian light, this generouspublication roams the country, from rugged coastline to arid outback, to reveal howlight shapes the wide, brown land. Wind-etched rocks, patterns in sand. Teal oceans. Surfers, slick in their wetsuits against the morning sun. A beach filled with people. A beach with no people. Rockpools. High-rise buildings against sand and sea. Goldensunsets over city skylines. Rays reaching through forest branches to frosted ground. Paddocks muted by mist, trees laden with luminous snow. The variation in the fallof light on Australia’s landscape seems limitless.
With an introduction by a galactic astrophysicist, In an Australian Light remindsus of the myriad ways light is experienced in that vast and diverse land.
