Friends Exhibition Preview
Dombrovskis: Journeys into the Wild
Be among the first to see the National Library of Australia’s new exhibition Dombrovskis: Journeys into the Wild, as the Friends host an exclusive preview with an introductory lecture by former Australian Greens leader Dr Bob Brown and exhibition curator Matthew Jones.
Peter Dombrovskis was one of the world’s foremost wilderness photographers. His powerful, reflective and deeply personal images of the unique Tasmania wilderness had a lasting impact, changing the way Australians think about their environment. The National Library has over 3,000 Dombrovskis transparencies in its collection, and has printed 70 of the best for a special exhibition in tribute to this remarkable man, the most complete survey of his work to date in Australia.
