Our guest speaker for the evening will be renowned Tasmanian landscape photographer and passionate environmentalist, Hillary Younger.
Hillary will be sharing with us her passion for the natural world, her inspirations and her vessel for bringing that world to us, her landscape photography.
An excerpt from Hillary’s bio;
There is, at the bottom of it all, a deep reverence for land and life. The wild identity of the land speaks to those who venture into its embrace. To know it in all its seasons, its moods and it’s animals, to communicate a sense of it’s wild spirit and mystery – this motivates my photography.
In the magic hours around dawn and dusk, the play of light and colour over water, rock and landscape reveals beauty often hidden , transforms the mundane into the sacred, creating experiences and images vibrant with the hues and subtleties of the mystery unfolding.
Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate intimate moments in that relationship, which stir the emotions and touch the spirit.
