My name is Heath Whiley. We have controlled the world so much thats its rare to find a place like the Tasmanian Wilderness that still dictates to us. An untamed wilderness where you can still feel a connection to the land and the rhythms of nature. Words can't describe it, you need to experience it for yourself. There is a feeling of excitement for the unknown. At sunset the sky could explode with colour, behind jagged peaks or a storm may unleash and you will be huddled in the fetal position in your tent.
Some people say that by capturing these wilderness areas I'm promoting people to visit, therefore ruining the wilderness. But I believe that sustainable visitation by hikers, is a better alternative than mining, hydro or forestry. I think people need to have an awareness and appreciation in order to protect something. So while I'm able, I'll keep exploring and sharing my attempts to capture the beauty of the Tasmanian Wilderness.
