To celebrate the launch of her first book, Shelter — How Australians Live, photographer, stylist and storyteller Kara Rosenlund will be hosting pop up events in Melbourne (22 October), Sydney (29 October) and Brisbane (14 November).
For a gold coin donation to the Country Women’s Association, everyone is welcome and you’ll be able to buy a signed book and purchase prints from Shelter, with Kara taking the opportunity to mingle with guests and share insights from her incredible adventure.
Also at each event, 12 images from the newly released book will jump out from the pages in an exhibition showcase. Selected by Kara, the prints are a tight summation of the year-long journey she took in bringing the book together.
A celebration of quintessentially Australian landscapes and interiors, Shelter spans the vast array of spaces that people call home. From abandoned, decaying cottages to repurposed shipping containers and cliff-top hideaways, the book is a visual feast, documented in Kara’s honest and poignant style.
“Shelter began as a creative idea and quickly evolved into a year-long adventure which saw me travel from one corner of the country to the other – taking in some of the most remote parts of Australia,” explains Kara. “I was welcomed into people’s homes with open arms and relished hearing their stories, which formed the stories accompanying each chapter.”
