Collection 01: Scenes of Glebe, 2002 / photographed by Patricia Baillie2002

by Patricia Baillie
Mirroring the earlier photographs of groups of children roaming the inner city backstreets of Sydney in the summer holidays, these Glebe girls seem to be enjoying each other's company and the liberty to wander beyond their own backyards. Patricia Baillie is a photographer who specialises in capturing life the vibrant streets of Sydney's inner suburbs. The faces of these laughing girls epitomise the joy and freedom of childhood.
