The Wilderness photographs of Peter Dombrovskis.

Peter Dombrovskis (1945–96) was one of the world’s foremost wilderness photographers. His images changed the way Australians think about their environment by making remote nature accessible through photography.
Through their use in environmental campaigns such as the ‘No Dams’ movement of 1982, his powerful, reflective and deeply personal images of the unique Tasmanian wilderness have had a lasting impact.
Seldom in the history of photography has there been as clear an example of visual culture bearing such political sway.
Presenting a vast sweep of the artist’s images, Dombrovskis: journeys into the wild is a collection from his extensive library of poignant images, being showcased for a limited time at the Monash Gallery of Art, Victoria.
