Hinting towards Allan Sekula’s more speculative mode of photographic enquiry – in league with American anthropologist Anna Tsing and late Australian philosopher and eco-feminist Val Plumwood’s broader perspectives on ecology – Wilson’s debut book Nocturnal Ecologies doesn’t so much make a case or establish a steadfast position in this wider schema. Rather, his poetic, at times quietly playful constellations of monochromatic images engage nonhuman and animal actors to pose questions, offer juxtapositions and draw connections. In Wilson’s ecology of images, native Australian possums, insects, bats and city plants converse with the fossilized remains of kangaroos from the Latrobe Valley and vegetative forms found in brown coal. In doing so Nocturnal Ecologies offers a series of conduits between our present lived experience and one of which the residual evidence can only be found deep in the ground
