Shar­ing quiet mo­ments of out­back life

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - Rural Profile -

THE drov­ing life has been the sub­ject of plenty of nos­tal­gic bal­lads, paint­ings and yarns across Aus­tralia’s lit­er­ary and pic­to­rial his­tory. So­cial me­dia plat­forms like Face­book, how­ever, are let­ting ru­ral peo­ple share their own story, help­ing other peo­ple see the world through ru­ral eyes, and to con­nect with their lives.

Ben Hann shares out­stand­ing images of life and land­scapes, work­ing an­i­mals and peo­ple along the long paddock and across the Top End, through in­ter­est groups us­ing the plat­form.

It’s an in­ti­mate kind of sto­ry­telling, etched in the amaz­ing light of the Out­back, and one that he hopes may be turned into a cof­fee-ta­ble book at some point.
