Immersed is a multi-media exhibition featuring photographic portraits by George Voulgaropoulos and a digital film that provides a broader insight into the lives of the portrait subjects. The subjects are of some of Auburn’s high achievers who have arrived as refugees and have received Auburn Council’s Citizen of the Year and have immersed themselves in the Auburn community. Auburn City Council has commissioned the portraits and documentary to profile these local residents that epitomize the Auburn City Council logo “Many Cultures One Community”.

George Voulgaropoulos is recognized in the industry for his ability to capture a depth to his subjects that enable the viewer to be immersed in the lives of the subjects. The portraits offer an insight into the lives, lifestyles and culture and the achievements of amazing local residents. The portraits by George Voulgaropoulos are an extension of his current series. George says “My photographs are a personal journey into the western suburbs, not a documentary but a body of work delving into Sydney’s rich culture during this period of globalisation and migration.

Peering behind the veil of misconception, this is a Sydney that most people will never see. I hope to also provide a glimpse into the life of the next generation of Australians living in the Western suburbs. Will this next generation of Australians hold onto their cultural heritage? Or will they be overwhelmed by the pressure to assimilate?

The body of work parallels my journey as a photographer, as an observer of a culture, mirroring my own experiences as a 2nd generation Australian.”
