Continuing Wyndham City’s commitment to public art, Council is proud to present a collection of portraits of people from the local community.
Six photographs taken by young people from Wyndham have been installed at Werribee’s Station Place, in the entrance to the station, and will remain on display until the end of 2023.
This series of portraits by young photographers from the community represents the many rich, diverse cultural backgrounds of Wyndham’s people, with photos selected from the Way Out West youth photography competition 2022.
Way Out West is an annual photography competition and traveling exhibition for local young people who live, work, study or recreate in Wyndham. Entries for the competition are open from March to May, and the exhibition is displayed in community spaces from July to December each year.
Following on from David Mullin’s ‘Faces of Wyndham’ installation at Station Place, these photographs are of people from the community, and were chosen to reflect the life and surroundings of Wyndham’s young people through the lenses of their own cameras.
Featuring three of the category winners of the Way Out West 2022 competition, these six photographers focus on the unique, vibrant, and creative community emerging in Wyndham.
The photographic works are (in alphabetical order):
- Ipsa Chatterjee – ‘Life on Water’
- Jade Jones – ‘Into the Void’ (Grand Prize Winner 2022)
- Lucinda Tabart – ‘Misconceptions’ (Best Use of Colour 2022)
- Mikhaell – ‘Rhythm’ (Highly Commended 2022)
- Naomi Kiyaga – ‘Black’ (Best Portrait Winner 2022)
- Simone Sardana – ‘My Perspective’
