Vukosav’s two passions of aviation and photography come together to create an extraordinary series of images of the remote Australian outback. A gods-eye view of our harsh, vast, volatile and majestically beautiful country. Printed on large scale canvas the viewer can appreciate the colossal magnitude and beauty the Australian landscape offers. Vukosav also hopes this latest series will raise awareness about the importance of sustainability and conservation of our fragile Earth. ‘So that the treasure we have will endure for future generations to enjoy. After all its our only home we must protect it.’
