Wild Landscapes - an Exploration by Peter Barrien


Although there is great diversity in wilderness areas throughout the world, it is the similarity in their emotional impact that captures Peter is seeking to develop a deeper relationship with the natural environment. He aims to freeze the essence of a wild place in time and mood, to find and reflect its wisdom, and perhaps proclaim our responsibility for ensuring that wild places will remain forever.

These images, captured in the arid northern Flinders in South Australia, the harsh tundra of Iceland, the wild coast of South Australia and the remoteness of New Zealand will hopefully demonstrate that, despite the their obvious differences, wild places all evoke a similar response deep within us.
