I was fortunate enough to photograph Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu backstage before his impromptu gig at Mullumbimby Civic Memorial Hall a few weeks ago. (One of my photos landed on the front page of Byron Shire News a few days later!) Gurrumul had been in Byron for two weeks recording at 301 Studios when his team mentioned on social media that he was keen to perform before departing the following morning. Word spread like wildfire and a nearly packed hall was graced with Gurrumul’s unmistakeable high tenor voice and mesmerising presence.
