By using an inside-out approach to record the lives of thirteen working girls from Kings Cross, Cruising provides a very immediate and visceral experience of their everyday realities, shocking truths and relentless dreaming.

The photo journalistic approach reveals a confronting physicality that comes with intimacy at a price, while the Kings Cross’ streetscapes are taken through dirty car windows and isolates the “objectified” in what seems a dangerously surreal world.

What is truly revealing about this project is the endearing commentary from the participants, their insights allow the viewer to connect with a familiar truth – it’s their familiar contradictions that define them.
