BIO Born in north-east Tasmania in 1960, Hillary’s first explorations of the island’s forests and shorelines were on horseback, later venturing into more remote locations on extended walking trips. After some years of traveling and living overseas and interstate, Hillary returned to Tasmania in 2006, drawn by a yearning for the island’s wilderness areas. It was at this time that her passion for photography was ignited. She has had two solo exhibitions and been an exhibitor in numerous group exhibitions. Her work is published in the book "Tasmania: a visual story", and she has been published in Australian Geographic magazine. She is a member of the Nature Photographers of Tasmania. ARTIST STATEMENT Hillary’s images remind us not only of the solace of open spaces, so essential to the soul ~ especially when these days we live more and more in virtual worlds where no sun ever shines or birds sing ~ but also that in the hands of a poet ~ a visual poet in this case ~ even a silent photograph brings forth landscapes rich with the sounds and subtleties of the mystery unfolding. "Tasmania’s wild identity, deep and subtle, speaks to those who venture into it’s embrace. To know it in all it’s seasons, it’s moods and it’s animals, to communicate a sense of its wild spirit and mystery - this motivates my photography. Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate the intimacy of that relationship and in so doing, stir the emotions and touch the spirit."
