Over their weekly conversation in an inner-city cafe, photographer Michael Wee persuaded his friend, painter and writer Tom Carment, to embark on some walks into ‘wild’ Australia. Inexperienced long-distance bushwalkers, Michael and Tom learned en route as they traversed hot, rainy, snow-covered, and bushfire-blackened terrain. Alongside Michael’s haunting, dramatic photographs, and Tom’s delicately observed watercolours and drawings are stories of each walk, interweaving history with anecdote, humour with observation. Seven Walks is the companion book to their adventures and captures the feeling of heading out on foot along a narrow track, into a beautiful landscape.

‘Tom Carment’s writing, like his art, seduces quietly: austere, highly articulate, always fresh, with a dry sense of the absurd. In this calm, modest register he commands great territories.’ Helen Garner
