Rainforest Country

Written by Stanley Breeden and Kaisa Breeden


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.

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