About Us

Our Story

Juergen's passion for landscape and wildlife photography brought him to the West Coast of the South Island nearly two decades ago. He lives in Hokitika with his wife Monika and daughter Anna, where the family established the Wilderness Gallery…creating the perfect environment to profile Juergens’ fresh and inspiring imagery and to show the beauty of the Coast. The love for the West Coast has become a major source of inspiration in their lives and their gallery showcases the work of handpicked New Zealand artists.


Our Mission

In the Gallery we strive to offer an experience that touches all senses -  it starts with the relaxing yet contemporary ambiance, then follows through with unique and authentic art and giftware we choose, to the warm and friendly service we provide. We hope to carry whatever we can over into your online shopping experience.
