Take a look at yourself

What does the city of Sydney and its citizens look like today?

To coincide with the Street Photography exhibition, we revived this forgotten genre of photography with a street activation across several locations in Sydney’s CBD. Photographers Roslyn Sharp and Tawfik Elgazzar, under the creative direction of photo-media artist Anne Zahalka, revisited places identified in the historical street photographs and reframed patterns and movements with modern subjects, capturing people out and about in the city today.

This gallery of faces reveals just how much we have changed – or have we?
