Abstract

On first looking at Ilona Schneider's wonderful images of the Tasmanian landscape, viewers are likely to find themselves drawn in two conflicting directions. On the one hand, what appears in these images are indeed landscapes, and their appearance is not dissimilar from the way landscape appears within the tradition of 'romantic' landscape art. Here we see landscape in its power and presence, in its seeming beauty and its sublimity, in Its topographic singularity.
