Trumpeter courier – Sydney icon


The trumpeter courier is one these unlikely characters that become an icon of the city. For years his music has been heard around the CBD. Usually in the mornings or at the end of the business day he stops somewhere and performs a number of well known tunes. While I was photographing him he was playing “El condor passa” – traditional Peruvian tune popularised by Paul Simon.
