The Kosciuszko Collection

The Kosciuszko National Park means a lot to me.

I visited for the first time back in the Spring of 2020 with a group of friends & it sparked an obsession. It’s a place where I find mental clarity, calm & focused creativity. I’ve revisited multiple times each year since that first trip, capturing scenes from different seasons – here is a growing collection of those images.

I’d like to acknowledge that the area in which these pictures were taken is in Ngarigo country.

I’d like to pick out these paintings (below) & their painter Eugene von Guérard (1811 – 1901) as one of the reasons for wanting to get up on the mountain. He brought the ideas of Romanticism and realism (spending time in nature to accurately depict it) along with the Düsseldorf school art style to landscape paintings in Australia.

I’d like to thank Luke Hasaart a local photographer for being at the right place & the right time to accidentally capture an image of myself & my group hiking into the area for the first time back in 2020.

Finally, I’d like to thank those who have & continue to trust me with their safety as a guide in this area. It takes a lot of logistics to get in & out safely.

If you’d like to learn more about camping & hiking in the park I have an article about doing that here
