Tom,
Something in print and a little bit different might be Australian photographer Gordon Undy's book/s. Not grand, heroic landscapes. More initmate responses to the Australian bush. His influences include Paul Caponigro and George Tice.

p.s. if you like fine jazz buy the Beads of Light CD put together by his two very talented children. It is a wonderful accompaniment for contemplating over any fine book of photographs.
