Portraits From A Safe Space - Part 1

Portraits taken in situ of some residents of the 24/7 Street Kitchen and Safe Space for the homeless and rough sleepers, set up and operated by the homeless themselves.

Over the weekend, the space was shut down by the City of Sydney Council. The organizers immediately relocated themselves to the other side of Martin Place, right outside the Reserve Bank of Australia.

These photographs were taken on a chilly evening, a few days after the eviction. The kitchen and sleeping places remain despite the ongoing threats by Council.
