Dombrovskis: journeys into the wild
Peter Dombrovskis (1945–1996) was the foremost wilderness photographers. His images changed how Australians think about their environment, making remote nature accessible through images.
Through their use in environmental campaigns such as the 1982 No Dams movement, Dombrovskis’s photographs became shorthand for the country’s environmental concerns. Seldom has there been as clear an example of visual culture bearing such political sway.
Dombrovskis: journeys into the wild was initially developed by the National Library of Australia. MGA presents this exhibition as part of the CLIMARTE Festival: ART + CLIMATE = CHANGE 2019.
