Kimberley "Creatures of the Giant Tides" is a collection of fine art macro photography from the rugged and remote Kimberley region of Australia - from Broome to Koolan Island.
Extraordinary macro photography from the Kimberley?s tidal flats and mangrove forests subject to giant tides up to ten metres.
These tiny mangrove creatures are no bigger than a normal fingernail and inhabit the extreme and beautiful remote shorelines of the Kimberley region in far northwest Australia.
The remote bays and mudflats near Broome and up to Koolan Island are subject to "giant tides" of up to nine meters.
Peter Strain, the photographer, has been photographing and filming in this region since 1985 and has created this unique collection of extraordinary macro photographs that defy simple description.
They are at once, fascinating images of tiny marine creatures, and depictions of fantastic characters that could have been created for an animated Hollywood space movie - but they are real living animals.
All prints are photographed 'on location' on the mudflats and among the tidal mangrove forests of the outback Kimberley coast.
This collection is still a work in progress and will be added to throughout 2009 with empasize on additional species, mostly from the remote regions of Roebuck Bay near Broome, featuring animals that can be photographed with both 'fine art photography' values and anthropomorphic characteristics.
