Entry Description:

In 2005, Gill Hicks lost both her legs in the London terrorist bombings. Travelling on the underground she was the last survivor to be rescued from the train. She has since gone on to become a great campaigner for peace and 2015 South Australian of the Year. In 2014 I photographed Gill for The Weekend Australain Magazine. As we discussed our ideas for the shots she told me that at nearly 10 years since the atrocity, she was now 'ready' for images such as these. Indeed the images reflect something of Gill's loss, but also her great resilience to continue to embrace life and not be ruled by fear nor hate.
