Street Photography: Street Activation
This Event Is
Drawn from hundreds of private family albums, this extraordinary record of Sydney and its people is featured in our Street Photography exhibition now showing at the Museum of Sydney. These photographs are displayed alongside contemporary reimaginings by photo-media artist Anne Zahalka.
To coincide with the exhibition, we’re reviving this forgotten genre of photography with a street activation across several sites. Photographers Roslyn Sharp and Tawfik Elgazzar, under the creative direction of Anne Zahalka, will be capturing people on Sydney’s streets across four city locations. Simultaneously well-known photographer Adrian Cook will be at First Government House Place on the forecourt of the Museum of Sydney to record some of the city’s inhabitants today on a limited-edition polaroid* they can take home.
Our photographers will be on the lookout for you as you shop, go to lunch or make your way to work.
If you’re snapped by one of our photographers, you’ll receive a digital copy of this image and also the chance to be featured in the exhibition.
