Tasmanian Elegies

This is a meditative project in the melancholic mode. This ‘through the lens of loss’ is a mourning  for  the destruction of the environment in Tasmania that was caused  by resource extraction, such as mining and forestry. Historically  the destruction  caused by  this form of economic development   has resulted  death and loss to both the people of Tasmania and to  the landscape.

Tasmania Elegies has its own Tumblr blog, which is where the images selected from the archives  go to form an ongoing project  that is envisioned as a book.
