DEAR DIARY // shelter book party
by A NOTE FOR ME
I have followed the work of photographer/stylist Kara Rosenlund and have always admired her creative eye. She captures the beauty of her subject with a simple aesthetic yet with a complex depth.
As an adventurer she travelled the country and documented her finds in the beautiful book ‘Shelter: How Australians Live’. Showcasing Australian houses in all their diversity with the traditional beach shacks, homesteads and sheep stations. Then there’s the unique homes converted from shipping containers and even a tram!
The author celebrated with a book tour including a photographic exhibition and pop-up shop. I attended the Sydney party which was a lovely experience of being immersed into a rural landscape right in the middle of the city. Kara’s inspirational speech ended with a spontaneous laugh from a nearby kookaburra – how Australian is that?
