    I'd give anything to have made that "Tobacco Road" photograph. When the State Library of NSW had his retrospective on show they were asking those who would like to buy a print of it (which was not possible, due to copyright issues) to leave their contact so that if the copyright could be settled they might offer prints. So far no news.

    I can't figure out whether I'm seeing some nostalgic view of Australia when I believe that he portrays our country better than any other photographer ever has. I can't speak for the rural scenes, but as one who grew up on the Northern Beaches I believe that he really nailed that society.

    This documentary was my first encounter with Jeff Carter's work. Some of his B&W work reminded me of the work of Dorothea Lange or John Ford's movie version of The Grapes of Wrath. Great work and apparently a very humble person. I hope he got the recognition he certainly deserves during his lifetime. What a pity that the documentary was so short. I could have watched this for hours. Is anyone aware of a book containing Jeff Carter's photographs?

    The SLNSW exhibition is still on the road, perhaps close to APUGers:

    Click on the tan coloured book cover for book details.
