Interview with Hillary Younger on F-Stop Collaborate and Listen
Episode 014 with Tasmania-based landscape photographer, Hillary Younger. Hillary is an inspiring photographer, deeply connected to the places she photographs. Our conversation covered some pretty remarkable topics, including the importance of the connection to place, the link between place and artistic vision, and what it was like growing up in rural Australia. In Hillary's words: "Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate intimate moments in that relationship, which stir the emotions and touch the spirit."

I really enjoyed Hillary's interview.She was articulate, passionate, interesting, driven by her passion and connection to the land and conversely her soul. I really loved the discussion about "chocolate box" photography verses taking time to developing a sense and connection about a place before trying to translate it in a photograph. I can really relate to that idea, but I won't lie, the term, "chocolate box" photography scared me for a minute and I found myself thinking... wait, do I do that? I think I have at times, definately and I don't want to Lol.. That being said, its more about the connection to the land and immersing myself for long periods of time, we have that in common. The conversation about connection with place was very stirring and for so long I have had some difficulty articulating my own feelings about my connection to the landscape when asked. Hillary's comments really helped my clarify my own thoughts on the topic. I will definitely listen to it again.She really caused me to look within and ask some tough questions about where my own photography is going. I thought this was one of your very best interviews, if not the best on your podcast. I really loved it and sat on the edge of my seat. Hillary is a very interesting person. Thanks :)
