About the Book

Australian Photography Magazine said the Breeden’s first book pushed ‘the boundaries of digital imaging’ while Discover Australia called it a ‘radical new photographic approach’ that captured ‘images of unparalleled fidelity of colour, light and focal clarity’.

In Rainforest Country Kaisa and Stanley Breeden bring their photographic innovation and vision to Queensland’s tropical rainforest — with striking results.

Few places in Australia are of such pivotal ecological importance as the tropical rainforests of northeast Queensland. Stunning in their diversity and vigour, they tell the story of flowering plant evolution. Rainforest Country captures not only the moods and cycles of this unique area, but its very essence.

Praise for the Book
‘This gorgeous coffee-table book celebrates … the landscapes of the wet tropics … but it’s the intricate photography that most appeals. Rainforest Country is a joyous and intimate homage, as much about the Breedens’ abiding respect for nature as a showcase for their obvious technical talents.’ — The Weekend Australian

‘The smells and sounds are brought to life by the combination of the Breeden ‘s written and pictorial work. A
beautiful read.’ Vacations+Travel

‘The standard is exceptionally high, making this a ‘must’ reference book for the budding nature photographer,’ Better Digital Photography

‘When Stan and Kaisa Breeden’s Rainforest Country crossed my desk, my immediate reaction was that I wanted to buy five copies of it.’ Eileen Rothwell, Weekend Post Cairns

‘… will open your eyes to the beauty of the small plant and animal life of the rainforests of Far North Queensland.’ Good Reading

‘The area’s flora and fauna is beautifully described and photographed.’ Blues Country Magazine

‘The stunning photographs are complemented by Stan and Kaisa’s writings, a combination of personal, geological and social history.’ Subiaco Post
