Please keep the width of embedded images (using [img] [/img] tags) in this forum to no more than 800 pixels wide (this will avoid them being clipped without notice by most users' window sizes). Attached images can be any resolution so long as the file size is no more than 1 MB (attachments will be displayed by the forums as thumbnails no larger than 800 pixels linked to the full-size image).

Please include a description of the pictures' content so that readers know what they're all about.

For topics focussed on narrative rather than the photos, please consider posting in one of the 'Trip Report' forums instead.

Some light reading for the Insta-famous, travel-bloggers, Abel-baggers and trophy hunters to consider when they set off to 'capture' and 'conquor'.

"You can feel Olegas’s slowness and attentiveness in these pictures. You can tell there is no audience in his mind. He is aware of texture and form, and plays with both affinities and juxtapositions of colour, in a way that is so much more impressive than almost all of the millions of photographs we see every day."

I've considered these issues deeply for the past 5 years, I'm glad others are too.

I was just gifted The World of Olegas Truchanas a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoying the accounts of his adventures in Tasmania.
