I took the following photograph on my parents’ farm.
The farm covers about 450 hectares (1100 acres) of land. Sheep (merino) and cows (hereford) are herded, and crops such as wheat, barley and beans (for animal feed) are grown.
For the first two years of my life I lived in Sydney, in the suburb of Rhodes. Then my family moved to Scotland, where for the first few months we lived in Bowling, but settled in Bishopbriggs, Glasgow. I started school at Meadowburn Primary.
We returned to Australia not long before my sixth birthday, living in the farmhouse where my mother was raised in rural South Australia. In 1995 I moved to Adelaide for further studies.
