Hard Times, Brave Faces

Photographer's Name: 
Alex Frayne

Samantha and Hayden were evicted from their Adelaide home and moved to Broken Hill where they are struggling to make ends meet. This photo captures an array of emotions of a family beset with bad luck, unemployment and mental illness. It also depicts a unique Australian stoicism, the kind that I see a lot in my travels through rural communities.
