Landscapes from Northern France, Stanthorpe and the wider Granite Belt area of south-east Queensland visually exemplify links between these communities who continue to commemorate their strong involvement in World War I.
Images from Northern France reflect bold monuments erected in recognition and remembrance of the Australian Diggers who fought beside them during the War. Across the world, Stanthorpe and the wider Granite Belt area commemorate their role through the naming of schools, roads and farms after French and Belgium towns and regions where the battles were fought.
Large audacious memorials in France contrast with quiet stones and signs along a Queensland country road.
On both sides of the world school children continue to remember, and acknowledge.
The images also reflect similar economic challenges facing all rural areas. Difficult economic times have seen an increase in tourism linked to wineries and/or stories of war.
