The Outback Character.

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Elle Borgward

I met Phil on my travels from Lake Eyre to Birdsville in Australia. He's one of the most memorable characters I have ever met, with an equally memorable dry sense of humour. To me, this photo captures the essence of the outback and the people that live there.

Location: Mungerannie, South Australia
