What’s your favourite photo that you’ve ever taken?
It would have to be this image of Mitch Clark:
It was Round 6, 2015 and Geelong had just triumphed over Collingwood at the MCG. Despite playing a great game, Clark (who has had a well-publicised battle with depression) was distraught, fighting to hold off tears as the team began to leave the field.
Overcome with sadness, he wandered off aimlessly down a side corridor in the rooms, where he and Chris Scott (Clark’s coach) very quickly walked away from the rest of the team, the coach placing his hand on the back of his troubled player, guiding him for support. A simple gesture which signified so much.
