As a teenager, Kiwi Alice Mabin narrowly survived a horse-riding accident that left her in a coma for 3 weeks. After this brush with death, Alice knew she had been given a second chance. She took up a job as a jillaroo in the Riverina, where she fell in love with Australia.
After many twists of fate Alice walked into a photographic shop and bought her very first camera and once again she found herself on the cusp of a new adventure, this one involving 551 rural properties across Australia and the creation of her photo books, The Grower series.
The images and content are designed to resonate with all Australians and share the stories of agriculture with the next generation.
Kendi Burness-Cowan talks to Alice about her latest work, and how she is getting these books into as many schools around Australia as she can.
