Richard Morecroft may be best known for his work on television 

however he has been exhibiting his distinctive vertical landscape photographs for several years.

 Some of his works hang in the collection of Parliament House in Canberra.

  

Richard’s photographs are richly textured explorations of structure and pattern

 in the natural world, from deserts and rainforests to majestic rock formations. 

His vividly coloured and dramatically composed images suggest the energy of abstract paintings

 and create a sense of immersion in the natural landscape.

“I try to make my photographs trace the pathway of the eye from the detail at your feet 

to the distance of the horizon”, Richard says. “Everything stays in focus to emphasize that every 

part of the environment is important and interconnected”.

Richard hopes his images encourage people to think about 

the structure of the world we live in.

 “I’m fascinated by the processes which produce pattern in geological and biological environments” 

he says. “As you examine the detail, you can see repeated motifs, like variations on a musical theme

Erosion, sedimentation, fractal patterns of vegetation growth or mineral formation – 

there’s a clear sense of common forces at work; universal rules of structure from micro to macro.”
