Old Sea Dogs of Tasmania
For seven years local photographer and author Andrew Wilson travelled the coastlines, islands, ports, anchorages and boat sheds of Tasmania, photographing and documenting the fascinating tales of the island's oldest living mariners – the Old Sea Dogs of Tasmania.
Andrew’s journey has resulted in the publication of two stunning coffee table books full of tall tales, high adventures and beautiful portraits and seascapes. Both books are #1 best selling titles in Tasmania, and combined, feature the coastlines of mainland Tasmania plus King Island, Flinders Island, Maria Island, Bruny Island and Port Davey, remote areas of the world full of stunning seascapes and rich in maritime adventures and humour.
After completing his seven year essay, Andrew discovered that he had amassed over 10,000 images of Tasmania's coastline, which lead to the publication of his third title – Coast Tasmania – a 300 page, 20x20" photographic coffee table book, or as the locals call it, 'The Big Blue Book', a pictorial tribute to Tasmania and it's coastlines.
All three books are beautifully presented in hard cover and signed copies are available for purchase directly from Andrew at his Old Sea Dogs of Tasmania stall at Salamanca Market, along with mounted prints and postcards.
*Shipping Australia wide can also be arranged at the stall for visitors who live outside of Hobart.
