Barossa Unearthed: Damion Linke

WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY

Pete Thornton

what pete shot

A ‘mostly’ portrait and ‘brief’ interview series by professional photographer Pete Thornton exploring the idea that one image has the power to tell the whole story.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa identities to come.

Stay tuned… Pete

Damion Linke

Australian Kenpo Karate

Damion Linke’s quiet, kind and patient demeanour seems in stark contrast with the fast paced, rapid punching, blinding blocks and gymnastic like moves performed in Kenpo Karate. 

But it is indeed all of these aspects of the man and the sport that attract a wide range of students, and particularly younger students like Ruby Baker who have found comfort in the challenge of learning the discipline and flourish under the guidance, respect and kindness of ‘Mr Linke’.
