LAUNCH
5pm Saturday 23rd March 2019
Exhibition continues until 11th May 2019

Every day the view would be different from the last, never the same. The colours, the sounds, the sky, the sea, always changing, yet always the same. For about 100 days I stared at this view never knowing what to expect. In the summer of 2013-2014 I spent 3 months on Maatsuyker Island, a tiny Island off the bottom of Tasmania, as part of an Arts Tasmania wilderness residency. These photographs are a small glimpse of the view from the house in which I was living and a little bit of what the island is like, they were shot on slide film.

Peter Maarseveen is a Hobart based photographer, camera builder, object maker. His main practice is pinhole photography, in which he builds cameras out of found materials. Since graduating in 2011, majoring in photography and sculpture, he has had numerous solo exhibitions and undertaken residencies, including one in North Carolina, U.S.A. He is currently studying honours, exploring plant based camera-less photographic techniques
