Artist's Description

*I saw this Aboriginal man on the bank of The Todd River in Alice Springs Outback Australia, it was around 7am and the temperature was already in the high thirties centergrade. The natural light was too good to waste so I walked over to him and had a chat.
He had a fire going over a piece of flat iron which had a poor excuse for a lamb chop on it.
I sat on the grass next to him, we spoke together for about 20 minutes when I asked him if I could take his photo.

This image was awarded a special merit when exhibited at The Melbourne Exhibition Centre

“Give me ten dollars " he said, I did and clicked


*Hey True Blue, don’t say you’ve gone
Say you’ve knocked off for a smoko
And you’ll be back la-ater on
Hey True Blue, Hey True Blue

Give it to me straight, face to face
Are you really disappearing
Just another dy-ying race
Hey True Blue

True Blue, is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad, is it a co-ockatoo
Is it standin’ by your mate when he’s in a fight
Or just Vegemi-ite
True-ue-ue Blue, I’m a-asking you

Hey True Blue, can you bear the load
Will you tie it up with wire
Just to keep the show on the road
Hey True Blue
Hey True Blue, now be Fair Dinkum

Is your heart still there
If they sell us out like sponge cake
Do you rea-eally care
Hey True Blue

True Blue, is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad, is it a co-ockatoo
Is it standin’ by your mate when she’s in a fight
Or just Vegemi-ite
True-ue-ue Blue, I’m a-asking you…

True Blue, is it me and you
Is it Mum and Dad, is it a co-ockatoo
Is it standin’ by your mate when he’s in a fi-ight
Or just Vegemi-ite
True-ue-ue Blue, True-ue-ue Blue
