About half of Australia lies above the Tropic of Capricorn, or Southern tropic. But living here for only 5% of the population of the country-continent. It is an arid land, inhabited by large ranchers, hunters crocodiles and Aboriginal communities. Geologists claim that the Northern Territory, which is comparable in size to South Africa, is rich in deposits of diamonds, gold and uranium. But one-fifth of the land is controlled by Aboriginal people who are against doing here prey. In recent years, protests of environmentalists are actively involved. Photographer David Gray (David Gray) made a series of pictures of these lands from the bird’s flight.
