I'd love to interject here with a completely shameless plug for four books which have just been published by New Holland
here in Australia. They are the Australian Journey series by myself, Andrew Teakle, and my beloved late partner, Debra Doenges. The titles are:
Australian Journey: Wildlife (with fellow photographer Michael Snedic)
Australian Journey: East Coast
Australian Journey: National Parks
They are 128 pages, small and compact at 21cm x 21cm (8 1/2 inches square) and retail here in Oz at $14.95. I'm not sure when they'll be released internationally, and there'll be a couple of weeks delay for the first two to get back on shelves while they get reprinted.
It has been a wonderful but tragically bittersweet experience to have our first books published with Debra losing her 14-year long battle with breast cancer just 3 weeks before we received our copies. I personally feel that she was one of the finest nature photographers working in Australia the last decade. Even more impressive that she lugged around medium format, then Canon 5D system, while being so hampered by the physical deterioration brought on by that horrible disease. But this is her wonderful legacy, and I hope the first of many more from the spectacular body of work she has left behind.
If anyone is interested in seeing some of her work, please visit our badly-in-need-of-updating website
Thanks all for your indulgence at this shameless plug.
