About the Book

Shane Strudwick has been photographing the Murray River and Mallee region for this book for over 6 years starting in 2004. He's aiming to reveal a small part of the secrets, stories, character and connections of this wonderful region for you to enjoy.

The stunning, unique and sometimes quirky images show a landscape and communities that have diversity, strength and beauty not seen anywhere in the world. As the Murray River has been through significant drought and stress this book shows you there's a lot more to the river than meets the eyes.

About the Author

Shane StrudwickShane Strudwick is successful environmental photographer and has been practicing his craft for over 20 years. He is able to capture unique angles, vivid colours, subtle beauty, interesting patterns and generally beautiful images that you'll really connect with and enjoy.

The design of the Murray River Mallee book - Australia's Great River Landscape was to allow you to appreciate and consider the region differently. This book challenges your perceptions of our great river visually. It reveals interesting new stories of the region and different visual angles. He has pulled together the region as a cohesive and interesting story as a whole river. There is interesting text yet not overwhelming amounts to read. There are also a diverse variation of large and small images to appreciate. It's designed for those who like to read and those who don't. See a sneak preview.

The Murray River and Mallee is big landscape so this is just a taste of its diversity. When you visit the Murray River in future you can consider how much importance it plays in Australia's identity and lifestyle and hopefully you'll look for the gems, secrets and experiences to enjoy yourself.

Shane's beautiful images adorn walls and are collectable. He recently exhibited Yarrum - Murray River Reflection in the South Australian Living Artist Festival. He is also an award-winning graphic designer running a very successful design studio - Brand Action. They've created and used a historic font Mallee Wooden in conjunction with the Southern Mallee District Council and Pinnaroo Printing Museum to convey the uniqueness of the region through typography.

This book has been crafted for maximum enjoyment, learning and for your pleasure with quality always being a main outcome.

Shane's been at the forefront of promoting the beauty and uniqueness of the Murray River and Mallee for many years and hopes this book will give you a new point of view and desire to reconnect to Australia's great river journey. Enjoy.
