Peter Dombrovskis (1945-1996) is not a household name, but his images are known to most Australians. His photograph, Morning mist, Rock Island Bend, Franklin River (c.1980) was reproduced hundreds of thousands of times and became the iconic image in the successful campaign to save the Gordon and Franklin Rivers. His wilderness photographic books and calendars were published over a number of decades and enjoy a widespread popularity.
