Old Film:: Farmer & Dogs, South West Tasmania

Environmental portraiture seemed to be another interest in my grandmother’s photographic repertoire. This photograph is scanned from a 6cm x 9cm film negative made by my grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986). The year could have been anywhere from the 1930s through to 1950s and I’m not entirely sure what decade such a farmer may have had electricity, so I’d be tempted towards later years. Especially as much of our power scheme was built with post-war migrant labour from Europe. I have no idea who the farmer is in this photograph but he was a hard working man in Tasmania’s rugged South West.

My name is Steven Clark and I live in the Derwent Valley in Southern Tasmania. I have an MBA (Specialisation) and a Bachelor of Computing from the University of Tasmania. I'm a mazer & a yeast farmer (making beer, fruit wine and mead as by-products of continuous improvement in my farming practices). I'm a photographer, although my film cameras are currently silent. I do not tolerate idiots. I do not tolerate bigotry. I do not tolerate excuses. Let's be clear, if you sit with my enemies you my are my enemy for life.
