WATERLOO here and now
The photographs taken by Fiona Wolf of the Waterloo area capture it as it is about to change, documenting the people, streetscapes and buildings.
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.
On display at the State Library of NSW until June 17 2018
