Barossa unearthed

Don Ross

Barossa Museum

With a passion for and an unwavering commitment to the development and curation of the Barossa Museum at Tanunda, Don’s mark and influence on this institution now spans a staggering 57 years of its 61 years since establishment.

Don is simply just one of many dedicated volunteers who over the years have sourced large amounts of the Barossa’s physical history to add to the collection, and saved said items from the weather of time: junk piles, clearing sales and leaving our region for good. In turn what now exists is an intriguing walk through time and a valuable preservation of how things used to be.

PETE THORNTON what pete shot

A ‘mostly’ portrait and ‘brief’ interview series by professional photographer Pete Thornton exploring the idea that one image has the power to tell the whole story.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa identities to come.

Stay tuned… Pete
