Well, I did and the images that came up were disappointing to say the least! Mostly they were images of grey haired, bearded men in checked flannelette and bib & brace overalls holding a pitchfork. That’s certainly not what any of the farmers I know look like!
So my new coffee table book project “What Does A Farmer Look Like?” was born. My aim is to challenge the stereotypes associated with farmers by putting together beautiful photographs combined with farmers’ stories from across Australia. I want to change that image and show the world what our farmers do and who they are.
My name is Kim Storey & I'm a rural photographer from Eugowra, NSW, owner of Avalind Photography and Dirt Roads Photographics.
I am visiting farmers from all different locations, backgrounds, enterprises & demographics to be involved. Including sheep, cattle & cropping farmers, graziers and station owners. Horticulturalists, market gardeners and flower growers. Aquaculture, crocodiles, tropical fruit and everything in between…even camel dairies and emu farms! I wanting a whole different range of people producing food and fibre in Australia.
I'll be travelling around the country over the next 12 months photographing and interviewing everyone and am currently planning my trips!
But I need your help! My travels funds have dwindled and so I'm asking for your help to complete the project and get this book printed. Help me to change perceptions of farmers and farming and to narrow the gap between city and country!
I can be contacted via email [email redacted].au or via direct message on the facebook page.

Please make sure you're following the project on facebook , instagram and twitter too!
I really appreciate any help you give to the project,
