Lake Eyre, at Australia’s centre, is a paradox: both hostile and inviting, by turns a pitiless salt plain and a riot of colour and pattern. Its beauty, mystery and astonishing variety are captured here by photographer Peter Elfes who has been travelling to the Lake Eyre region, documenting the people, the landscape, the floods, the animals and wildlife. His spectacular images re-define landscape photography, taking it into the realm of art. Where others have only found an unchanging Australian desert, Peter’s lens reveals the spectrum of colours, the dramas and infinite changes which countless artists and writers have sought to explain.  With accompanying text by renowned author and critic Peter Timms, this is Australia as few have seen it: a strange and intoxicating land which occasionally becomes a green desert.
