Chris Bell
Tasmania: Primal Places

Laurel Press 2002
277mm x 278mm, hardcover, 104 pp
$75 rrp

In this collection of photographs, with subjects ranging from Nature’s grandeur to its more intimate face, photographer Chris Bell takes us on a visual journey through the temperate landscapes of Tasmania.  His text, based on notes made during his field trips, reveals his passion for the natural world and reminds us that maintaining our fragile alliance with Nature is paramount if there is to be a world worth inhabiting.  The author has walked among these special places over the past 30 years and used his photographs to raise awareness of wild land in general, and of Tasmania’s in particular. 

These wildlands are recognised as among the world’s most outstanding natural areas, where the land still remains intact, whole, undisturbed, remote from the insatiable forces that have already modified or ruined much of our Earth.  Left as they are, Tasmania’s primal places will be a source of inspiration and joy, reminding us of the extraordinary journey the Earth has taken thus far and of our inextricable part in that journey. 

For lovers of Nature photography and visitors to Tasmania alike, this book offers a beautiful memento of these very special places.
