Tasmania’s clean and green image is being put under the spotlight with Entropy 1, a collection of images from Tasmanian photographer Isla MacGregor, who’s had a 30-year fascination with the ‘conflicted zones’ of Tasmania’s West Coast. Isla’s images show how the uncontrolled mining of our past has left a weird and ravaged landscape and these images are beautiful and perverse at the same time. Her aim has been to bring another “truth to the art of photography of the Tasmanian landscape and the collision between human activities and our ecology.”
