Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach were photographed on tour in London in 1993 by Tim Webster.

This is an evocative image of the two performers on the road in England. It perfectly captures an exciting moment in time as the two musicians are hitting their stride and making a name for themselves internationally.

Webster gives the photograph a sense of energy and excitement by capturing Archie and Ruby standing still, watching, while people and a red double-decker bus are moving around them.

The two wear Aboriginal colours and sunglasses, with Archie's denim jacket and Ruby's feather headdress completing this arresting image.
