Nicholas Moraitis AM
Nicholas Moraitis AM is an interesting and generous man.
This was my entry for The Moran Photography Portrait Prize.
The image is made up of many layers taken over a series of
months, that were finally brought together
The image represents the man and some of his passions in life , his family & horse racing.
His son can be seen sitting at the back of the stable.
The potatoes represented where he came from .
Nicholas slogged it out delivering sacks of potatoes as a young man and over many
years built has built up one of Australia's premium produce supply companies.
Nicholas at the time of taking this image was the Owner of Might and Power.
The winner of The Melbourne & Caulfield Cups, as well as the Cox Plate.
Only the second horse in history to win these prestigious events.
