If you like photography at all, do yourself a favour and watch this short 30 minute documentary that was recently aired on Australian ABC channel but which is currently accessible on the net via:

ABC iVIEW

The camera gear is NOT important for his style of freelance photo journalism (he used a Nikon F film SLR but these days, one could use an Olympus OM-D, Fuji, Sony, or a dSLR – it doesn’t really matter!) – it is what he brings to the image, his creativity, his eye, his personality and interaction with the subjects and his respect for his subjects, while there is the sad underpinning throughout of his own family photography and tragic, unexpected death of his main life long subject – his son while he was traveling in Sri Lanka as a young adult.

Do yourself a favour and don’t miss it!
