Wolfgang Glowacki is one of Tasmania’s most well known and respected wilderness photographers. Through his stunning landscape, macro and black and white photographs, Wolfgang brings the unique beauty of Tasmania to the world. His work is exhibited extensively and appears in print, including books, greeting cards and calendars, and online. Wolfgang’s most recent book publication was ‘Wildness Tasmania’ in 2011, a long-anticipated follow-up to his debut, ‘Artscapes’ (2007). Now, Wolfgang is excited to be bringing you his latest images in a book titled ‘Wild Island - Tasmania’, a true celebration of a special place. This new publication will showcase many of Tasmania’s remote wilderness areas, such as the Tarkine coastline, Franklin River and Western Arthur’s, as well as more well-known locations, including Cradle Mountain and Freycinet Peninsular. Followers and people new to Wolfgang’s work will be moved and amazed by each photo, beautifully displayed in this special hardcover: ‘Wild Island - Tasmania’.
All of Wolfgang’s books are self-published, which, as you can appreciate, requires a lot of effort, time and money. Please help him to promote the amazing beauty of Tasmania in this exciting new book by making a donation to this campaign. If the target is reached, Wolfgang will qualify for Crowbar: Arts Tasmania’s crowd-funding initiative, a generous grant of a further $2,000.

Tarpology - the art of creating shelter using only imagination and a tarpaulin. From its simplest form a nice A-frame to the grandiose Tarp-Mahal.
This dude has a sick skill!!
This rock balancing is done by Michael Grab. He is an artist and has killer patience. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains:
“The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.” Pretty sick, amiright?
Beautiful, rock art to a whole new level.
