Our tattooed house painters Taon and Tommy were a colourful, entertaining pair. The wonderful thing about the camera is that it gives your subject(s) their fifteen minutes of fame and validation. When you spend time listening to someone else's story you are often rewarded, both visually and with a greater sense and understanding of the beauty of humanity. Taon is from the Gamilaraay clan of Walgett, New South Wales and Tommy is of French and Irish heritage.
