By Griffiths, Dr Simon
Used for a variety of purposes, from work to pleasure and many things in between, the boat has sparked innovation in the minds of people for thousands of years The Boat--a vessel for escape, adventure, trade, or travel. This is a mode of transport of infinite variety and one that... inspires serious passion, whether made of workmanlike bolted steel, sleek modern fiberglass, or lovingly hand-burnished timber. Photographer Simon Griffiths has an eye for the beauty of ordinary things; in Shack he showed us the eccentric living spaces and holiday homes that Australians have made out of simple dwellings. In Shed he peeked inside some of Australia's most intriguing sheds. Boat showcases the character and craftsmanship of all sorts of boats and boat builders, from old whaling boats to new high tech sailing boats.Read more
