Product Description
 
For 35 years, photographer Andrew Chapman has roamed Australia in search of woolsheds. Some date back to the early 19th century; some are still in use; many are tumbling away into time. With an artist's eye and love of light, Chapman celebrates their place in the landscape and the subtle beauty of old beams, tolls, and fading writing on walls. His images linger like oil and lanolin stains on timber floors. There are sheep. And dogs. Also the people who work in, or own, these sheds. They have told Chapman their stories. This is rich social history as welcome as a drink at the end of a day's shearing.
