Most were shot for the A Day in the Life of Australia project, where international and Australian photojournalists were gathered in Australia to photograph the people of the continent in a single day. The very best of the 96,000 photographs taken on that day form the basis of this book.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VICTORIA takes you into homes, factories, farms and offices throughout the Garden State. ‘A Day in the Life’ unfolds with wheat farmers in the Western District and then continues with workers in multinational industries, school children in Collingwood, dairy farmers in Korumburra and the owner of a soda shop in Geelong.
