Book overview

This latest work by Australia’s pre-eminent rural photographer, Andrew Chapman, beautifully illustrates what has been left behind in the wake of vast change across the nation.

Travelling widely, he has captured both the hardship and prosperity that come with changes in the weather. What captures his eye is the mark that time leaves on manmade objects.

This magnificent collection of images is also a valuable document of a style a farming that is fast disappearing.

Andrew Chapman’s photographs, taken between the early 1970s and 2015, beautifully illustrate what has been left behind in the wake of this vast change across rural Australia.

Chapman peeks inside abandoned houses, into sheds and under trees. He captures the hardship and prosperity that come with changes in the weather. What captures Chapman’s eye is the mark that time leaves on manmade objects.
