My suburb, my community

Guided by professional photographer Mandy Schoene-Salter, Kingswood High School students  received a camera, tuition and basic photographic technique.

Capturing their community, the resulting collection confronts local challenges; securing jobs, embracing multiculturalism and empowering youth.

This project was funded by a Magnetic Places grant from Penrith City Council’s Neighbourhood Renewal program.
