Card Players

1999   128 x 210 cms   NFS

Pension day was coterminous with the liveliest and biggest card games; the day when serious money could be made or lost. These took place in the dry Todd Riverbed and within the various town camps. Adrian Hayes sits, midpoint on a milk crate surrounded by Hayes and Johnson family members. John Wallace is on the extreme left, his wife Donella deals the cards. Green-jacketted, Lawrence Hayes is hunched over his hand of cards.
