Roadtrips: Andamooka

In 2000-1 Suzanne and I returned to Andamooka and we stayed for several days. As we were travelling in a Ford Laser hatchback, we weren’t able to venture off road, to say visit Lake Torrens, which I really wanted to see.

So I mostly walked around the town looking at the buildings–sheds and homes. I also concentrated on photographing the tailings landscape which lay within, and just outside of, the township.

There is a tradition of road trips in Australia, though it is currently a fractured and fragmentary one, as there is little commentary about those photographic road trips that we currently know about.
