9780702236723: Pedder Dreaming: Olegas Truchanas and a Lost Tasmanian Wilderness

Olegas Truchanas, a Lithuanian émigré, is remembered not only as one of the fathers of Tasmanian wilderness photography, but also as a conservationist, a thinker, and an adventurer. This biography of Truchanas reveals a man who stands quietly among the 20th century's most influential wilderness photographers and higlights the values underpinning his art and activism. Stunningly illustrated with original Truchanas photographs, this book captures the raw beauty, vulnerability, and oftentimes brutality of the Tasmanian wilderness.
