"""Forgotten Dreams, Burra, South Australia 748pc Panograph of Australia Ken first immortalised this old farmhouse in his early days as a landscape photographer. The original shot was a rather different view; at that time the surrounding field was an expanse of deep red dirt. But that photograph became one of his most famous shots when it was used on the cover of Midnight Oil’s legendary “Diesel and Dust” album. How it tickled him when he returned to the area more than ten years later and the local tourist office gave him directions to “the Midnight Oil house.” While he was there, the farmer came by, so Ken asked his permission to photograph. He said, “Oh, ever since Ken Duncan took that shot, we’ve had heaps of photographers!” Then Ken said, “Well, I’m Ken Duncan.” The farmer was a really nice bloke – he even helped him fix something on his Toyota. And he told Ken the story of these forgotten homesteads which had been abandoned because the harsh climate couldn’t support the original small holdings. At least now – through photography – their legend lives on."""
