Henry Gold is one of Australia’s foremost landscape photographers. His work has covered the Greater Blue Mountains, Kakadu, the NSW rainforests, the Snowy Mountains and Central Australia. Some even say it was his photographic masterpieces that were the final ‘clinch’ for World Heritage listing the Greater Blue Mountains in NSW in 2000. His role as the Honorary Photographer of the Colong Foundation for Wilderness began soon after Milo Dunphy convened a meeting of fifty conservation groups to prevent limestone mining near Mount Colong in the southern Blue Mountains in 1968. It was a desperate fight against the largest cement company in the world. New creative campaign tools were needed. Henry shot the image for the classic campaign brochure “Quarrying Valuable Scenery” that helped save the Colong Caves. This year the Colong Foundation for Wilderness celebrates its 50thAnniversary and the role that Henry Gold’s breathtakingly beautiful photographs have played in protecting Australia’s wild and beautiful places. Henry Gold continues to inspire many to love and protect Australia’s wilderness such as the superb pagoda wonderland known as the Gardens of Stone near Lithgow, still under threat from unrestrained longwall mining.
