Woman Abandons City Life To Photograph Australia’s Remotest Landscapes
12 years ago, Australian photographer Julie Fletcher exchanged her mundane job, failing romantic relationship, and comfortable Sydney city life for one of the remotest and tiniest towns in the country – Marree. Her move helped her see the most spectacular and breath-taking landscapes in Australia and capture them with her camera.
Being the only female landscape photographer in Australia was a major motivation for her to overcome the challenge of becoming one herself. However, she told Dailymail that being a lone traveling photographer is a lot more difficult than it seems. “It’s not glamorous, it’s hard work, it’s tedious. Sometimes you are camping in very remote areas and you are alone. I’m obviously aware that there are nasties out there that can kill me,” Fletcher admits.
After taking thousands of landscape photographs, her work has been recognized by fellow photographers around the world, and some of her works have been published by National Geographic.
