A New Eye on Nature - 2023 Tasmanian Land Conservancy Photography Residencies
In 2023, the Tasmanian Land Conservancy ran a photography residency on its nature reserves. These emerging photographers spent a week deeply immersed in three distinctive landscapes. Through its arts projects, the Tasmanian Land Conservancy encourages contemporary and diverse views and understandings of our relationship with and responses to nature. As nature changes in dramatic and unpredictable ways, so too must our representations. These photographs will spark conversation on what nature is, what it is becoming, and how conservation organisations such as the Tasmanian Land Conservancy might respond.
Artist's Statement - Kelly Slater
I’m a lens-based artist and professional photographer, who ventures into environmental image making to convey my personal interpretation of Place. Through my photographic practice, I aim to share the essence of the environment and my experiences of diverse topographies. Recent bodies of work I’ve developed, address colonisation, identity, and the space between love of the natural environment and exploitation of it.
I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to reside briefly on the Tasmanian Land Conversancy’s Reserves of Daisy Dell and The Vale of Belvoir. The residency came to me at time when I needed to change focus and immerse myself in a different kind of space. Walking across these reserves I was moved by how the weather sculpts the land, it is the curator of light and sound across the terrain. It has been working on these valley projects for eons, I saw its signature everywhere from the soil to the canopy, on every surface grown or made.
