Working in the media as a newspaper photographer you get to meet, greet and photograph people from all spectrums of society. Take this guy for example whom I met this morning…
Reverend Leslie Pearson, 81 years old from Eastwood Uniting church in Sydney, Australia is slated to receive an OAM (order of Australia) on Monday 11/6/2012 for services to the community.
Leslie, amongst other things, worked as a qualified builder and was able to employ these skills in the 1950′s where he was posted to the pacific island of Samoa as a missionary builder. Words and picture by Brent McGilvary
