Last night we watched Picnic at Hanging Rock and I had such a desire to wish it to be a true story (not to have people missing but I love a good mystery). The story always draws me in but I am left disappointed by the fact that it never happened. Does anyone else feel that pain?
I love the work of Polixeni Papapetrou in the Haunted Country series and how she has staged the scenes in the natural environment at sites in Victoria such as the Wimmera, Daylesford and Hanging Rock, where children became lost. Although I am unsure whether she realises the Hanging Rock disappearances never took place. Irregardless the images are beautiful. Check out more bush lost children HERE.
