Peter Dombrovskis prints on exhibition at NGV

The National Gallery of Victoria currently has three Peter Dombrovskis photographs on exhibition. The dye destruction prints were printed during Peter’s lifetime in 1985. These are a real contrast to Les Walkling’s contemporary ink jet prints exhibited in the National Library of Australia’s Journeys into the Wild exhibition.

‘The work of Peter Dombrovskis is synonymous with the Tasmanian wilderness. Peter photographed using a 4 x 5 large format view camera to capture images from the expansive to the smallest detail. These images were used to produce some of the finest printed publications of their time including the calendars and diaries, books, posters and cards under Peter’s imprint, West Wind Press.’
