Woodley and Dorothy Smith

Born 1930 and 1938

Harden, NSW

“Half a loaf is better than none at all”.

Waiting out on the veranda was Woodley and his wife Dorothy. As the birds were singing, Woodley sat patiently in the warm sun, while Dorothy greeted us from the door.  The couple were from Harden, a township in the Hilltops Region of New South Wales.

Judith Bensley
Born April 9th 1931
Young

"Be kind to people"

Judith met me on her four wheeler at the farm gate of her Nerriga road property, just ten kilometres out of historic Braidwood, the day I came to photograph her last year. At this time the area was in desperate need of rain, and still is, having endured a bitter winter with no feed for the stock on the sheep farm. Still,...

Margaret Edwards
Born 1939
Gundagai

“Never get involved when people are talking politics and religion”.

As I drove along the Murrumbidgee River and into the picturesque country town of Gundagai, I found myself surprised by my surroundings. What was normally a very lush and green area of the Riverina, was now the driest I had ever seen it. Located between Sydney and Melbourne, this...
