Aerial photographers receive stamp of honour

Two award-winning WA landscape photographers, Christian Fletcher and Richard Woldendorp, have had four aerial images turned into postage stamps, as part of Australia Post’s Art In Nature series.

Three of Christian’s photos, and one of Richard’s, make up the collection of $1 double-definitive size stamps, designed by Andrew Hogg and available now.

‘To showcase these abstracted landscapes and their painterly quality, these stamps are in double-definitive size, giving a larger-than-usual “canvas”,’ said Australia Post philatelic manager Michael Zsolt .

Christian’s photos are of Wyadup Rocks and Shark Bay in WA, and Lake Macdonnell in South Australia. Richard’s is of Cape Capricorn in Queensland.

The abstract aerial photos illustrate the ‘exquisite beauty’ of Australia’s natural land forms, and the ability of nature to mimic art.

Christian, who runs two galleries – one in his hometown of Dunsborough and the other in Mandurah, told The West paper it was an honour to have his photos featured on stamps.
