These images form an ongoing project that follows the longest continuous highway in the world, Highway 1. This major highway stretches across all states in Australia (including a loop in Tasmania) and joins all the mainland state capitals. At a total length of approximately 14,500 km it is among the longest highways in the world. Every day more than a million people travel along various parts of it.
Drawing inspiration from the 1967 coffee table publication "Around Australia on Highway One" by George Farwell, these photos explore life both on and off the highway and in the process re-examine cultural understandings of what it means to be Australian today.
Almost 50 years after this seminal book was published, it can be said that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
This set of images was taken along Highway 1 between the South Coast, New South Wales and Cairns in Far North Queensland.
