Wilson was an avid traveller and took a large number of photographs during his travels to many destinations, including European countries, parts of the USSR , the southern Pacific, to both polar regions. Although many of his photos are geological—details of rocks and their structures or panoramas of large formations—the bulk of his photos are of the places and people that he saw on his travels: landscapes, city views, sites, vehicles and fauna, occupations and people.
