Home: photographs of ethnic communities by Louise Whelan

Level 1, Macquarie Street building

On display until 24 August 2014

Australia is now one of the world's great multicultural countries with one in four Australians being born overseas. Sydney based photographer Louise Whelan started photographing ethnic communities in NSW with the endorsement of the State Library of NSW in 2010. The photographs take the viewer into homes and urban environments of both refugees and migrants now calling Australia home.
