Tasmania Bushfires 2013 Photo Essay

In late January, Creative Fellow Michael Hall photographed the aftermath of some 40 bushfires that ripped through communities on the Tasman Peninsula earlier that month. While Australia has always had hot days and fires, their frequency and intensity are rising with a changing climate and that has very real human impacts.

"Some mixed and strange emotions as I drove the Arthur highway a day after it was reopened to the public, meeting people amongst the ruins of their homes."

-Michael Hall, Creative Fellow
