Smeaton Church | Limited Edition
The tiny town of Smeaton in rural Victoria features some mystical yet significant historical buildings in the area.
The area of Smeaton was named by Captain Hepburn who founded the town in 1838 and he named it after his hometown in Scotland. The estimated cost of the building was 1,200 pounds.
The church was built of locally made brick by local brick-makers and carted by local volunteers.
The beauty and isolation of the area is a photographer’s dream. This church always had a slightly foreboding feel and a tenuous attachment to the world via the electrical wire amid the harsh bleached landscape in summer.
