Around the Sheds
From Andrew Chapman, the best-selling author of Woolsheds, comes a stunning new photographic book exploring the world around the sheds – the shearers, the roustabouts, the dogs, the dunnies and the sheds themselves.
On his photographic odyssey, Andrew Chapman takes us on a visual journey where much has changed from those early days, yet so much remains the same. Andrew has travelled to every state and taken a snapshot of an industry that has had its ups and downs, but like a punch-drunk boxer always manages to get back off the floor and go another round.
Through Andrew Chapman’s lens we meet farmhands, roustabouts, cooks, woolgrowers and even a one-armed shearer, all who share a common link – a declared passion for an aspect of Australian life that is in danger of disappearing altogether.
