About Steven Pearce and his photography journey
Steven Pearce is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker. He is the creative director for The Tree Projects. Steven began his photography journey, much the same as most of us, by photographing visually pleasing compositions, and like most of us, he longed for meaning and purpose in his work.
Since 2017 he's gone to ridiculous lengths to climb and photograph the giant trees of the world.
"It wasn’t until I started tree climbing and saw the unknown world of the canopy that I really found something unique. Then as I witnessed the tragic misuse of Tasmania’s forests time and time again, I really found a message and purpose. The complexity and the scale of these projects result in the ability to create just one image per year. But these images are producing a change in the culture of Tasmania and helping to elevate these silent giants into the spotlight."
Steven will introduce the evening with stories from his journey as a photographer, and then present his 30-minute film documentary based on the research by his wife Dr Jennifer Sanger. This documentary helps to explain the true levels of carbon released when these giants are logged from Tasmania's old growth Forests.
