Kym Watling & Geoffrey Bates of Unumgar NSW are songwriters and performers of contemporary Australian old time music. Gothic laments are juxtaposed against joyous and playful tunes as Watling & Bates span the generations with a swag of songs about love, hope, county wisdom, and contemporary rural decay.

Their photographs are captured through the car windows as they travel, headlights sweeping the highway, or with the sun rising, setting, or melting the bitumen beneath their wheels in the heat of an Australian summer.

When they do stop for a break, or when they are back home in Unumgar, Dr Watling turns the camera to insects, small animals, plants, and minerals.
