Abby Storey is a contemporary photographic artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Her exhibition Of the Land looks at the complex and sometimes paradoxical relationships between humanity and the natural world.
This series forms both a portrait of a man and an exploration of the life he leads. Terry, like his forebears, is a farmer, hunter, dog trainer and man of the land. His is a world of animal husbandry but also animal slaughter, with home-kill meat being a staple of the family diet.
Of the Land was previously shown at Gippsland Art Gallery from 30 November – 27 January 2014.
