A photographer’s photographer, Richard White leaves behind a legacy of vibrant black and white landscapes in the fine tradition of large format cameras and Ansel Adams’ love of the darkroom.

Richard was not a fan of digital photography and post-production, but we mustn't misrepresent him. He owned digital cameras and used Photoshop, but what he loved most was his 4x5" view camera and processing sheets of black and white film. He was a large format fan.

Richard subscribed to the belief that you need to be a master of the craft, before being able to express the art of the soul. His work is the sublime expression of this philosophy – clean, studied and expressive. He taught many of us to slow down and to create studies of what we are photographing. To see, to understand and photograph with empathy.

Richard White leaves behind a legacy of great Australian black and white landscape photography. Like Ansel Adams, he was passionate about education and the environment in which he lived. Unlike Ansel (for whom we have the greatest respect), his family won't be able to fit Richard's best work into a small book of 400 prints! Ansel was a black and white technician, Richard was a black and white artist - who in many ways stood on Ansel's shoulders to take photography a step further into the future. He represented progress in his field of endeavour.

We hope everyone enjoys our photographic tribute to Richard in the current issue of Better Photography magazine.
