Alfred Wilkinson was an active member of the Adelaide Camera Club from the first decade of the century to the early 1930s, working in the pictorial mode then in vogue - photos showing a hazy and indistinct image. This work is possibly one of his contributions to the 1924 exhibition of the Australian Salon in Sydney.
The photograph depicts two draught horses pulling a plough held by a man who walks behind. They are seen moving away and to the left into a landscape which is bland, and not typically Australian.
Like all photographs in the pictorial mode, it has the softness of a misty painting.
