A Wild Vision
We opened Wild Island in October 2014 with an exhibition of the iconic images of Peter Dombrovskis.
Peter Dombrovskis was foundational in Australian landscape photography. Peter gave us a superbly crafted view of wild places that was evocative yet intricately detailed. His work and its role in campaigns for Tasmania’s western wilderness set an international benchmark. He helped change the course of history and the lives of many people.
It is fitting that the opening exhibition of the new Wild Island centre, at the location of the Wilderness Society shop at Salamanca in Hobart, should showcase Peter’s work as its opening exhibition. The Wild Island gallery and interpretive space will offer uplifting imagery and insights into wild places, along with an array of locally sourced and ethical products.
