Photographers and artists are joining forces with St Marys residents, commuters and shop owners to celebrate the diverse group of faces and stories that make up the area.
Faces of St Marys is a unique street photography project that comes from Fusion Western Sydney, in collaboration with photography students from the Nepean Arts and Design Centre, Kingswood TAFE and Sydney Trains.
The aim of the project is to build a sense of connection and pride in St Marys by capturing the faces that make up its fabric. Images will mainly be focused around the northern end of Queen Street, the Fusion Café and the St Marys railway station and bus terminal precinct.
The Faces of St Marys project is set to spark a conversation between its participants, partners, artists, and local people.
The project kicked off in early November and will culminate in a launch and exhibitions in June 2020.
