PHOTO ESSAY: Meet Bear

By Nico / July, 6, 2011 / 0 comments

Meet Bear, an Ex-Motorcycle Gang President, now since passed. I met Bear through my mother, when I was living and working in Broome, WA.

When I first met him, way back in 2007, I asked if I could take his portrait, to which he replied “Absolutely not.” Years later, when I met him again in 2011, he was suffering from cancer, and I knew he didn’t have much time left. So I asked him again, to which he agreed.
Not long after he drank himself to death, alone in his home, with his two dogs.
