Greetings from Waterloo
Waterloo is on the cusp of becoming dismantled and redeveloped, with generations of history in the area finding itself at a crossroads. “I had similar origins growing up in a social housing area. As a photographer now living nearby in Redfern, I felt the stories in Waterloo, one of Sydney’s last social housing communities left, should be told”.
Greetings from Waterloo is a photographic record for those who call Waterloo home and those who will see their community irreversibly change.
Every picture has a story, a truth that Sydney-based portrait photographer Joel Pratley takes to heart in each of his nuanced images. His trademark is a natural and unforced style, creating larger-than-life cinematic narratives. Adept at approaching sensitive subject matters, Joel has a prowess for helping his subjects share their important stories.
