RICHARD Green's Remote and Wild photography exhibition at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery has amazed everyone who has seen it.

The work spans 20 years of Mr Green's retirement which he has spent travelling to remote parts of Australia by helicopter taking photographs of the landscape.

Mr Green, who has one photograph in the permanent collection of the National Library, said he was pleased to be able to show Griffith his collection.

"There are photos here from every state and territory of Australia," Mr Green said.

"It's quite unusual to go heli-camping but it has given me a unique opportunity to capture these images.

"I retired 24 years ago at which point I got my helicopter licence and a helicopter and I have been doing this ever since."

Griffith Regional Art Gallery coordinator Kristy Brown said the exhibition has been going very well.

"The uniqueness is amazing. He really has been able to go to places the rest of us wouldn't be able to and the result speaks for itself," she said

"Everyone has admired his skill and ability and I suggest you come in and see it for yourself by November 24."

Mr Green was in Griffith for the launch of the exhibition where he explained travelling all around difficult to reach parts of Australia and the technical process of his panoramic style.
