Second image in the series of Jim, Korean Digger who I was very fortunate to photograph & spend time with learning of his experiences in the little told of Korean War.

Jim came by this hat by chance a few years ago. An American touring Australia got talking. His father had also served in the Korean war and very proudly he gave him this cap. One of Jim’s treasures :D

Thank you for looking.

    Tainia, you’ve done it again! An absolute screamer of a photo that proves beyond any doubt that the subject does NOT have to be looking straight into the camera lens with a cheesy grin. Brilliant work me darlin’
