A portrait of Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter taken in 2008, two years before Ruby died at the age of 54. The two had been together for 38 years.

This is a delightful portrait of Archie and Ruby taken in a natural setting, showing the close bond between the two. Although they have a similar difficult past this photo suggests they have arrived at a point of contentment. It's made all the more poignant knowing that Ruby passed away a short time afterwards.
