Florian von Widmann
German born, Florian has been making traditional huon pine boats and dinghys at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin for the last year. I’ve a huge appreciation for this craft, with most construction decisions occurring by eye, the level of detail achieved from such basic tools is amazing.
I visited him at work, hoping to capture a sense of the spirit and love of his work in my photographs.
A practitioner of honesty; in photography and life. Adam combines careful composition with light-footed spontaneity to uncover the human truth. With an eye for dramatic tension, his work reflects a life spent roaming within and beyond the wild Tasmanian landscape, responding to diverse creative briefs. He instinctively turns the abstract into the iconic. Making rare moments accessible to a new audience.
Drawn to photography as a teenager, technical proficiency and an understanding of image making were honed by a decade of design and creative direction. This period also marked the beginning of a diverse creative network that continues to evolve, and bring scalability to Adam's work to this day.
Architecture, people and landscape are the heroes. But the best story is always yet to be told.
