Wesley Stacey is a living legend of environmental photography. In the 1970s he turned his back on the bright lights of Sydney and set up camp in the wilderness of the NSW south coast. For over 40 years he has lived in the ‘great outdoors’, using photography to explore and connect with the ecological complexity of the Australian landscape. The wild thing, curated entirely from the MGA’s own photography collection, surveys four decades of Stacey’s work. From his lively colour snapshots to his epic black-and-white panoramas, Stacey pays tribute to the wildness at the heart of our existence on Earth.
