Please join us at the Gallery for the official launch of Kelly Slater’s photographic book, WATERMARKED.
This book presents a photographic story of the Mersey River, which flows for one hundred and fifty kilometres through northern Lutruwita/Tasmania, from the glacially sculpted highlands of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area into the sea of Bass Strait.
The publication of this book marks the resolution of a three-year creative project Kelly began in 2019, to explore the diverse environments that form and are formed by the River’s journey from source to sea.
The book is printed in Devonport Tasmania by Impress Print; its size is A5 with a softcover. Containing 120 pages of colour and black & white photographs, with accompanying text. The book’s design has been done in collaboration with Manderlee Anstice, with a foreword by Julie Gough.
Formalities commences at 6pm but people are welcome to come at any point during the event. Books will be available to purchase. The launch is accompanied by a small pop-up exhibition of photos from the early stages of the River Project.
More information about the project can be found at
Light refreshments will be available.
This is a free event, with RSVP to appreciated for catering purposes.
