Unique shearers kitchen, 2007

Juanita WILSON, born 1972.

 

This sheep station’s kitchen walls are decorated with paintings by the station owner’s wife and a fellow artist. They remind the inhabitants of what the area looked like before the drought, and express an ever-present hope for rain. Photographer Juanita Wilson notes, ‘It was a unique space and seemed to bind the shearers, owners and managers in an understanding that we’re all in this together’.

 

Near Wilcannia, New South Wales.
