Natural Visions: the camera and conservation in Tasmania

On display at the Queen Victoria Museum, Inveresk from 29 August

 

Tasmania's unique natural environment has inspired photographers for more than a century. This exhibition documents the development of Tasmanian landscape and nature photography from its earliest days to the present, and charts shifting attitudes to Tasmania's natural environment.

From trail-blazing innovators pushing the limits of new technology, to conservation crusaders using their photography to raise awareness of threats, Natural Visions draws on the collection of the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Archives Tasmania and private collections to showcase stunning photographs from photographers who shaped a genre.
