George at Poeppels Corner – Simpson Desert – June 1972

George Cornwall was an avid photographer. Through work with National Parks and Wildlife Service in South Australia, he was able to travelling through outback South Australia. He moved in 1978 to Victoria, he continued his work in National Parks Victoria and continued taking numerous photos.

After George, my father in law, passed away in 2007, I gained access to his great collection of photos and slides. George was meticulous in his labelling of his photos. They included many of his passions – including the outback, animals, reptiles, birds and vegetation.

Heather and I are planning to visit many of these areas. My objective is to photograph locations that George photographed to see the changes that have been made.
