Wyndham City’s Creative City portfolio holder, Cr Marcel Mahfoud said:
“The Way Out West Station Place Photography Installation showcases a collection of six photographs featuring portraits of local people from Wyndham and is a wonderful celebration of diversity.”
“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 2022 Way Out West Youth Photography competition held in 2022.”
Way Out West is an annual photography competition and traveling exhibition that is open to local young people who live, work, study or recreate in Wyndham.
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.
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.
“Installed in the entrance at Werribee’s Station Place, it creates a stunning visual backdrop and will be on display until the end of 2023.” said Cr Marfoud.
These photographic works are by (in alphabetical order): Ipsa Chatterjee, Jade Jones, Lucinda Tabart, Mikhaell, Naomi Kiyaga, and Simone Sardana.
