Covers a wide collection of legends over 216 pages!
Photographer Richard Simpkin set himself a herculean task; take a photo of 100 Australians he believed had attained status as legends. Starting with a knock at the door of the Adelaide home of cricketer Sir Donald Bradman, Simpkin approached dozens of famous people, from veterans reluctant to be called legends, through to media moguls who had long ago ceased to even consider themselves Australians. Artists, actors and inventors all posed for him and told their stories. Many of the legends have since passed away, in one case within days of being photographed. Each of this great collection's vivid photographs contains a brief bio of the subject, as well as a description of how the author managed to get the legend on the other end of his lens. 216 pages
