A Country Life presents a collection of photographs taken between the late 1920s and mid-1960s which form a record of one woman's experience as a pioneering female photographer. Olive Odewahn's work is an example of mid-20th century vernacular photography in rural Australia. It is an exhibition of people and places, posed portraits and candid moments, community events, recreation, and family. The artist’s shadow makes occasional appearances, as do all manner of farm animals, alongside crowds in Wagga expecting the Queen and the construction of the Hume Dam in the 1930s. The exhibition is curated by artist and photographer Dr Catherine Rogers, with the assistance of Valerie Odewahn.
