Australia’s drought – the cancer eating away at farms

From ground level, Australia’s drought looks like a featureless, brown dustbowl, but from the air it transforms into an artistry of colour and texture as the land cracks under a blazing sun.

Circular dry plough tracks resemble the concentric circles in Aboriginal dot paintings that tell of an ancient mythology, starving cattle queuing for feed look like an abstract painting and their black shadows stretching across the land a surrealist image.

But for farmer Ash Whitney, there is no such beauty, just blood, sweat and tears as he struggles to feed his cattle, cutting the drying branches of Kurrajong trees – a last resort during the worst of droughts.

“I have been here all my life, and this drought is feeling like it will be around a while,” says a despairing Whitney, whose property near the town of Gunnedah is on the Liverpool Plains, a usually fertile area now withered having received the lowest average rainfall in nearly 30 years.

Manmade Land | Hans Strand

Landscape photographer Hans Strand has always been captivated by Mother Nature and all her different sides, from the freezing Artic to tropical rainforests to dry deserts. Using the Hasselblad H6D-100c, Hans explores the interference of humans on nature from an aerial perspective in his project, Manmade Land.

At first glance, the geometric shapes captured from above resemble brush strokes found in a piece of Spanish artwork. But upon closer inspection, one sees that these marks are not natural – rather, it is manmade landscapes that dominate our earth. After years of photographing various sceneries around the world, Hans realized that, especially from the seat of an airplane, there is no denying the impact that human beings have had on the land. Taking advantage of the earth’s resources, humans consume and destroy without a second thought, resulting in a loss of diversity in wildlife and vegetation. “It is this kind of human destruction of the earth that I try to capture, both literally and figuratively,” explains Hans. “The patterns that human impact forms on the earth’s surface are graphic artwork in itself that I want to make us realize the extent of our actions.”

Women in photography: Jumana Jolie and the rise of Dubai

Photojournalist and aerial photographer Jumana Jolie grew up in Dubai in the 1980s, when it was a developing desert town – long before it became a synonym for futuristic cityscape living and air-conditioned luxury.

With more than 250 posts on Instagram, as @pixelville, Jumana has attracted a global audience of more than 100K followers thanks to her vertiginous photographs from city rooftops. She shoots in what look like terrifyingly dangerous places, between impossibly high-mirrored towers, using her Canon EOS 5D Mark III. “I play with angles – it’s all about perspective,” she says. “It started out as a hobby – off the back of my love of architecture. I’d look up and think, ‘Wow, that building is beautiful from here, but I wonder what it would look like from up there?’ It’s so different, seeing the world from above.”
