Born in the suburbs, married to a grazier and raising 4 kids in the bush, Melissa Pratten now has a true appreciation of life on the land and how hard it can be and yet at the same time be so rewarding.
Melissa would like to think that her work takes the viewer’s imagination wondering back to a time…. good times, hard times, the old times.
Most of Melissa’s photography is of old things… boots, hats, cars, tractors, sheds etc.
What you see is a story, a life, a piece of history and hard yakka in a frame.
