I first discovered Rennie Ellis through this photo of two bronzed Queensland couples, taken in 1983

I'd rate it as one of the greatest Australian photos ever taken, I can seriously relate to this image, surfing was big in my life during the eighties, however I could never have pulled off such majestic moustaches, then or now.

Over the years I've checked out more and more of his photos of Australian life during the 70s and 80s. Sadly Rennie died back in 2003 at only 63 years of age, luckily we have his body of work forever. Check his work out peeps, well worth it..

I was trying to recall why I knew his name - question answered in the final pic.

That was a great toilet book!
