Acclaimed Canberra-based landscape photographer Scott Leggo has just announced a beautiful coffee table book chronicling 15 years of his efforts capturing Australia will be released in time for Christmas.
The premium quality hardcover 224-page coffee table book, titled Australia – a photographic journey, will feature over 200 photos capturing the beauty, breadth and wonder of this big, wide land.
With six chapters showcasing Australia’s coast, outback, country, mountains and forests, snow, and waterways, Scott said his book will highlight Australia’s diversity of landscapes.
“There’s such dramaticdiversity across the landscape and I think a lot of people appreciate how much Australia has on offer,” he said.
Scott has travelled right across Australia – from the highest mountains in the Australian Alps to the harsh, dry deserts of Central Australia – to form his unique collection of landscape photographs.
According to Scott, Australia will be ‘a must-have’ for the of “anyone who has travelled across this and for those who dream of the opportunity to ”.
Curating the book has been a rewarding process for Scott that has involved sifting through 15 years’ worth of photographs to create a book that at once flows well and gives an overview of Australia’s landscapes.
“People having been asking us for a coffee table book for a while, but I’ve always been conscious of having enough photos to essentially cover enough of Australia so that you can do it justice,” Scott said.
“In any book, you can’t cover the entirety of Australia, you can’t cover every geographic area and landscape, but what I’ve tried to do is have a sample.”
Scheduled for release in November, Australia is now available for pre-sale at a discounted price of $65.
Books ordered for pre-sale will arrive in November 2021, in time for Christmas, and be personally signed by Scott.
“It’ll be gift, for diplomats who have been in Australia and want to take something home, through to people who want to share Australia with others,” he said.
