Loic Le Guilly

Dawn to Dawn – Exhibition by Loic Le Guilly

Recent images of the Tasmanian natural world by Loic Le Guilly.

This exhibition is an eclectic mix of images from night and day, east and west, small and grand. Of the great expanse of wilderness forest, through to delicate traceries of colour in fluting sandstone. From shadowy Wineglass Bay in a deep night sky to the lushest of green in a deep rainforest.

“I love Tasmania. Its wild nature is a constant source of awe and serenity to me. My photography is simply to share the amazing places I get the chance to visit. I want people to care for Tasmania. I want people to realise the unique gift we have here around us. Photography still has the power to do that.”
