There And Back:
Tom Chesson


These photos were literally taken at the Back of Bourke on an irrigation property whose main crop is cotton. The shots were taken on an early morning walk not long after good rains had fallen in 2016.










Tom grew up on a farm in far western NSW and knew at a young age his shooting was best done with a camera. With a journalism, media adviser, CEO and now  with his new job working on a plan to release the carp herpes virus into Australia's waterways, photography is part of Tom's everyday work. Outside Australia's capital cities is where Tom does most of his shooting and wandering around regional and rural Australia is home to his 'happy place'. Tom usually has a camera on him and can be followed via Twitter @tomchesson01
