On this episode of ‘Stories Behind the Photo’, it’s a photo of myself and Tony “Rok” Rokov. Tony was a commando in the Australian Special Forces and a personal friend of mine. We attended Advanced Free Fall together and spent many a day and night shooting the sh*t.
In 2015 he had a young boy in tandem and a freak gust of wind sent them barreling to the ground. He would wrap up his passenger and take the brunt of the impact, costing him his life and saving the life of the young boy. Tony was a warrior and a friend.
‘Stories Behind the Photo’ is a series where I delve into the context of what’s happening in some of my war photos.
