The Decaying Kind | Lara Sawyer.
My series of rusted and decaying portraits visually represent the diminishing respect from those living the mainstream urban lifestyle towards the people apart of the agricultural industry in Australia. A once proud industry is now hidden behind layers of false propaganda showing the happy smiles of farmers plastered in large all over your nearest grocery. As a farmer’s daughter, I have observed this loss of culture and a lack of empathy from society towards those who deserve our recognition and respect. Through my series of somber and decaying portraits of Australian farmers I aim to communicate our plight and the decay of our kind.
