Here and Now: Waterloo

Here and Now: Waterloo

In 2015 the NSW Government announced plans to redevelop the suburbs of Waterloo and Redfern, areas with a dense concentration of public housing buildings. The plans include demolishing the existing housing (including the twin towers Matavai and Turanga, formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1977). Photographer Fiona Wolf-Symeonides has documented the people, streetscapes and buildings in the lead up to the change. The photographs, recently acquired by the Library, highlight the diversity of the community, and the individuals and families who call Waterloo home.
