We live here : Sydney is a collaborative project between me as photographer, and participants who want to get involved. The idea for a project that gave me the opportunity to get to know Sydney and her inhabitants has been bubbling away for some time, and when I stumbled across a blog called i live here sf, I knew I had found an idea which ticked all the boxes for the project i wanted to do.
I got in touch with Julie to see if she minded me borrowing her idea and bringing it over to Sydney. Her response was a kind and hearty ‘Of course!’. To date, there are 6 ‘I live here’ projects, and I am honoured to be part of this network of photographers who are telling a story about their city, one person at a time.
The other projects are:
Ottowa Canada: Hello Ottowa
Seattle, Washington: I Live Here:Seattle
Bemidji, Minnesota: This is my town: Bemidji
Portland, Oregon: I live here: pdx
I hope to bring my own style to my corner of this project, as it grows and evolves with more participants. I want to use this space to experiment with slideshows and mixed media – a combination which at the moment is very new for me.
Please get in touch if you would like to get involved. Anyone is welcome to join in, all that is required is that you live in Sydney, and agree to write something that I can post on the blog. I can be contacted by email at email@example.com
In return for your involvement I will link back to your website as well as a CD of all the images from our shoot. Please feel free to use them in any way for personal use, and if you would like to use them in a commercial context, please let me know and we can work something out.
