Disappearing Tasmania: An Image of the West

Can a landscape tell us of the people who inhabit it? The West Coast of Tasmania is a landscape populated through the energy of industrious people. The communities are remote. A vast wilderness is set between each town, defining the perimeters of habitation.

These images are the beginning of an ongoing study documenting Australian rural towns that have suffered severe decline over a ten year period. This study aims to investigate the declining populations of these unique communities. for more information see: http://disappearingtasmania.bizhat.com
