Bay of Fires, Tasmania
Here at TheNews.com.au we take pleasure in promoting Australian artistic talent, and Tasmanian Photographer Joshua Vince fits the bill with his stunning photography. Joshua has released a Calender showcasing his work for 2020 called MMXX. Featuring evocative landscape images of the wilderness, his body of work captures the many moods of unique Tasmanian landscapes. Upon viewing Joshua’s work an instant immersion into the scenery takes place, followed by awe.
Some of his photos see us immersed in mysterious passages of water flowing around massive numinous grey immovable stone landmarks. Stark contrasts of black and white through to delicate ephemeral shades of grey create a mystery of otherness – a beauty in starkness. They evoke feelings of something yet to reach, but not forgotten.

Other photos are taken from a ground perspective, with majestic lichen rich boulders rising as megalithic giants. Foregrounds of burnt umber and raw sienna on a background of shifting grey enhance the depth of the images as majestically mysterious monuments, leading our eyes to exquisitely warm distant backgrounds of sinking sunsets and a distant sunrise that recreate an almost forgotten wonder – a true connection to nature, a oneness almost tantalisingly out of reach. Beyond the monumental landmarks Josh creates an ephemeral and hauntingly beautiful daydream that calls to us. Fresh and visionary, Joshua Vince sculpts with the camera in his unique showcase of the Tasmanian wilderness.
