Almanac (Photography) Books: ‘Waiting Under Southern Skies’ by Colin Abbott







Almanac member Colin Abbott is a photographer and writer. He has been behind the lens since attending Art School in the early 1970s. Born in Adelaide in 1951, he has lived and worked in Melbourne for nearly 40 years.


Waiting Under Southern Skies is a selection of evocative and previously unpublished images from Colin’s personal archive which dates back over 50 years and documents Australian life, as it presented to him. It is an intimate narrative of people and places during a period of immense social change in Australia.


Priced at $40 (including postage), Colin is very generously donating proceeds derived from sales through the Almanac to be used for Almanac purposes.
