Greetings From Oz: Snapshots From the Roadside

Dalton, Patrick

A hilarious collection of photographs brilliantly depicting what Australians have to actually put up with every day. ‘Don’t judge Australia just by the Australians.’ Dame Edna Everadge Welcome to Australia. One of the most far-flung and beautiful destinations in the world. Home to the dreamiest coastlines and cityscapes human beings have ever clapped their eyes on. Home of dags, bingles, snags and sangers, Australia boasts some of the planet’s most exotic, dangerous and unique species of animal and insect and, irrefutably, the most inspiring outback terrain and ocean vistas known to man. It is the country referred to as the land of the plenty, God’s Own Country. And it’s true. It is. But God’s been a bit absent lately. Which is why, now, after all these years, Australia has started to look a little overgrown. A little bit long in the tooth. It is, in short, a country in need of a good hose down … and a hug. This is a hilarious collection of photographs reveal the eccentricities, bleakness and humour of every nook and cranny of the entire country – the dry bleak deserts and the over-the-top inhabitants. GREETINGS FROM OZ is a warts-and-all walk around the world’s most crazy country, seen through the eyes of its own locals and Patrick Dalton – the quintessential Englishman down under.
