For six decades, since 1944, Jeff Carter has been photographing itinerant bush workers, fruit-pickers, fishermen, shearers, drovers and battlers, capturing the mood of the country's working class. His work comprises one of Australia's most remarkable and historically significant archives – in all more than 50,000 images of Australian life. This documentary draws together the themes and passions of a lifetime of photographic enquiry.
Inland Heart: The Photography of Jeff Carter would be an excellent film to show to middle and senior secondary and tertiary students of Photography. Equally, it would be a fascinating visual text for students of Australian History and Society, offering an insight into the realities of rural life in an Australia that is now passing.
