«With his brilliant colour photography Simon Carter, born in Canberra in 1966, shows the fascination of rock climbing in the incomparable landscape of Australia. Carter, a top climber himself, captures magic climbing moments in pictures of riveting athletic and visual beauty. Picture, action, person and site form a perfect unity.
The photographs, published by leading climbing magazines all over the world, and above all the book «Rock Climbing in Australia» convey a most convincing, powerful amalgam of both photographic and climbing expertise.»
