Yatina Hotel, Yatina, South Australia, Australia

When I came across this abandoned hotel, I couldn't help but feel that this old pub had been totally forgotten. Built in 1874 when the town of Yatina was established, early hopes for the new establishment were disappointed in 1877 when a promised railway extension bypassed the town. The town of Yatina never grew to any significant size and today this building remains the last clear example of what once was.

In photographing this historic building, I wanted to convey the forgotten feeling of this pub left abandoned in rural South Australia. There is a modern sealed road out the front of the building and a small hut to the left and these elements distracted from what I wanted to create in the final photo. I decided to overlay a photograph from the other side of the road. The resultant is a composite photograph, an attempt by me to leave elements out of the scene, much as a painter does, to hopefully convey the true feeling I had when I came across this forgotten pub.

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The listed size includes a 8cm white border around each side of the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.


A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is the total finished frame size, including the frame and border around the image.
