Driving down a dirt track one day photographer, stylist and adventurer Kara Rosenlund came across a beautiful but dilapidated farmhouse.
Its lonely, worn loveliness kindled a passion in Kara to photograph and celebrate Australia's authentic, intriguing rural homes and the people who live in them. As she travelled the country, documenting raw and real interiors and landscapes, she found shelter – under the roofs of beach shacks, grand homesteads, sheep stations and shipping containers, and in the welcome of strangers.

I absolutely love this book. Love the individual stories and beautiful pictures. I leave it on the coffee table and can pick it up and refresh my memory on the stories and places whenever I can.
Gorgeous book full of amazing photos and humorous musings by the author/photographer. Really lovely looking through and would make an amazing gift, definitely. My only 'criticism' is that I wish that more text was included. Kara Rosenlund writes so beautifully, but not enough and I was left wanting to know more. I know she is predominantly a photographer and the photos should speak for themselves, but I reckon she would have done an AMAZING job adding more text - she is certainly capable. Left wanting a little more? BUT the photos are so beautiful!
