On the road with Sophie Matterson
When I got the call from Australian Geographic to track down Sophie Matterson and...
I first met Lynnie out the front of the Pink Roadhouse in 2012 at the conclusion of filming the COBRA bike ride with 25 young Aboriginal men and boys. I was instantly impressed with the dexterity of Lynnie’s vocabulary and drawn to her honest and warm personality.
Lynnie’s journey has been a tough one and I strongly empathise with her loss and grief.
This portrait was taken at the beginning of the final ride at the Oodnadatta Bronco Branding that was in honour of Lynnie’s late husband Adam who died doing what he loved driving in the Targa Rally.
