Up the Cross
Rennie Ellis & Wesley Stacey
Museum of Sydney
Cnr Bridge & Phillip, Sydney
20 February – 8 August 2010

Rennie Ellis and fellow photographer, Wesley Stacey, spent the summer of 1970-71 in Kings Cross, getting to know the locals and delving behind the scenes. Together they captured the sights, sounds and pulsating rhythms of life on the streets, in the clubs and residences of Sydney’s infamous red light district. It was the ‘summer of love’ and the Cross was as much a magnet for long-haired pilgrims and avant-garde artists as it was for US servicemen on leave from Vietnam. This exhibition of their photos reveals moments of joy and pathos, the surface glitter and what was going on backstage, providing a fascinating portrait of life ‘up the Cross’ at a unique moment in time.
