Ultimo Pyrmont Photography Exhibition 2011

StoriesFromStreets Sep10 30 285x207 Ultimo Pyrmont Photography Exhibition 2011 Our Neighbourhood, Our Friends is a new exhibition of around 130 photographs by residents of Ultimo and Pyrmont, reflecting their personal vision of our neighbourhood and our local community – the friends who play such an important part in our everyday lives. This exhibition is above all a tribute to these ordinary, very special people who, over the years, have helped to create the unique character of our area This follows the concept’s highly successful debut in 2010 with Stories from our Streets.

Photographers interpreted the theme as they wished, which produced a wide variety of creative approaches. The family next door, the couple on the corner, the old man across the road, the sporty,the dog-lovers, the toddlers….are all seen with fresh eyes.

As before, the aim was to include as many community members as possible; it was not a competition. Everyone was encouraged to take part, and they could submit up to 3 photographs of their choice, taken anywhere in Ultimo or Pyrmont. The project loaned cameras to people who didn’t have one. This year’s oldest entrant was eighty, and the youngest were students from Ultimo Public School. All proceeds from sale of the photographs will be donated to a local mental health initiative, and copies will once more be archived after the exhibition closes to provide a record for the future of Ultimo and Pyrmont as they are today.

The exhibition opens on Friday, October 14 at the Uniting Care Harris Centre, Quarry Green, Ultimo. Entry is free and all are welcome.The photos will also be displayed at:

  • Wentworth Park Games on Sunday 16th October
  • The Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre (ITAC) and The Powerhouse Museum (King’s cinema),
  • The Bendigo Bank, Pyrmont branch, The Ultimo Community Centre and the Pyrmont Community Centre until end October
