The Life of a Mountain Hut
Klaus Hueneke brings Four Mile hut to life.
Where does the social life of Australia's high country occur? Ski-tourers and alpine walkers, striving for shelter and ahead of dusk or bad weather, can be profoundly un-chatty; and tents are mostly poor places for conversation. It is inside the high country's huts that society flourishes.
As a photographer Klaus knows that the narrowest of aperture can give the greatest depth of field. In this book he has chosen a single hut, which ironically burnt down in 2020 before he could publish this book, to combine fact and fiction in the telling of its story.
- Softcover with additional jacket added in 2021 to celebrate the decision by NP&WS to rebuild Four Mile and other huts lost in the 2019/20 bushfires.
