FARM LIFE” by Chloe Adler

I grew up and am currently working on my parent’s sheep and cropping farm.  My love for the land runs deep in me.  My photography journey started when I was about 15. I picked up a digital camera, taught myself to use it and fell in love with the art. Naturally one of my favourite things to photograph is farm life.

I have always been drawn to film images, so last year I decided to take the leap, I brought my first film camera (my beloved canon eos3) and dived into the film world.

I shot my first roll of black and white film at shearing time and when I got the scans back they were pure magic!  It was then that I knew I had to document farm life on film and not digital.

About Chloe Adler


I am a 20 year old photographer.  I grew up on my parents farm, which is just out of a small town called West Wyalong in rural NSW Australia.  I fell in love with film photography a year ago and I’m now incorporating it more and more into my work, I hope to one day photograph solely with film.


I sell a few of my favourite photos as prints.
