That's Jimmy "Paddy" Poland, a senior Malgana man from Gutharraguada (Shark Bay). And that man lurking in the background looking admiringly on, is Michael Fletcher at the premiere screening of his recent documentary based on Jimmy's days growing up in Shark Bay hunting, droving, shearing and fishing. Now in the prime of his life, Jimmy has also become a renowned Aboriginal artist, proving that it's never too late to follow your passions.
150 people flocked to the Shark Bay World Heritage and Discovery Centre to share Jimmy's extraordinary life and the documentary that told his story so well.
We'll let the imagery show you how the day/night unfolded...
