Carnarvon Cup Portraits

September 16th, 2009 — 3:19am

Just back from Carnarvon where I was visiting my old mate, Tim Booth and wifey, Emma.  I did a few series of work, while I was out there, some on the plantations, a story on the Carnarvon Cup and a series inside the Aboriginal township known as Mungallah Village.  Among the most interesting people I met were Margaret and George Dimitrovski who found a gold nugget in 1995 that weighed in at 214 ounces, making it the sixth largest ever found.  More on them, including parts of an interview will be available on my website, soon.

The people I met were incredibly friendly, very down to earth and wonderfully informative.  Here’s a bunch of portraits that I made during the Carnarvon Cup, the biggest race day of the season.

Hairy and sweaty after squash.  More ringflashery.

So, a guest blogger, Jeremy Cowart, on Scott Jarvis’s Blog, had this idea.  And ran with it.

It looks like a pretty good way to take quality photography to the masses and help out those in need.  Perhaps a great way to introduce people to the joys of owning art, too.   It is an especially important idea here in Australia if we consider how little Aussie society/business values good photography these days.  How often do you hear “It’s all just digital, right?”
I’m in.
