Photography and Wilderness – Talk by Chris Bell – POSTPONED
April 1, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
Photography and Wilderness
Chris will discuss the two issues he is most passionate about (and which are deeply entwined in Tasmania): photography and wilderness.
He will discuss how photography has raised our awareness of the natural world and in so doing has played an enormous role in saving both the places that matter and the creatures that live in them. In particular photography has played a significant role in saving wilderness – the apex of our physical landscapes.
Despite the current debate about the veracity of wilderness, wilderness is real, definable, defendable as a concept, and locatable. In light of the dismissive claims about wilderness in the current discourse – to say nothing of the threats – Chris will largely concentrate on this subject in the talk.
