Tasmanian Times

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    Thanks for your encouragement Tess. You might have missed out on the opening of my first photographic exhibition [i]Entropy 1[/i] last year in Feb but it is still on at the Mount Wellington restaurant at the Fern Tree Tavern.

    You can see some of the images here:

    …less the photo of the [i]FOR SALE[/i] sign on the West Coast Council owned Zeehan property that has acid mine drainage oozing into the roadside drain. This photo also excluded from [i]Entropy 1[/i] posted on Australian Geographic online.

    Dear ISLA, please, please, please consider compiling a book of your poems to go with your spectacular and famous photos. Not only would you be doing Tassie a favour, but also showcasing your own amazing talents in word and the visual arts.

    Maybe Handsome Linz could do a TT imprint with a Tassie publisher!

    For sure it would be a best seller. And what a wonderful gift to spread the word about Tassie and to pay homage to her steadfast beauty – despite our awful and expedient vandalism.

    Go Isla!

    With the fires and devastation accomplished by climate change, these beautiful images capture precious, simple and terrible narratives of life and our interconnectedness with the land. Bravo!

    Thanks to all for your comments. Yes Tess #5 [i]a thousand and one words[/i] – I could have written a short poem for these pics though – about what the future holds for our planet without radical preventative action. Extinction, weed invasions, collapse of mechanised transport and fuel supplies, ghost towns, no go zones and poisoned regions. These are indeed black and white and dark pictures.

    Congratulations ISLA – very moving portfolio and yes, the sandstone dinosaur says a thousand and one words.

    * Also, congrats Linz, on this fab intro to the calendar months. Great idea.

    The sandstone dinosaur is fantastic. The hoop looks like a creature.
