This is part of a larger collection of images randomly taken in the inner Sydney area between 1970-1973. Precincts covered include Kings Cross, Darlinghurst, Woolloomooloo, The Domain, the City, Glebe and Balmain. The works graphically illustrate the forty-year transformation of the city and its demography.

Shown here are ordinary people going about their daily lives – traditional street documentary subjects. By combining strong composition with familiar narrative themes, Leon Gregory examines the quirky, funny and sometimes touching moments that are woven into the tapestry of people’s everyday lives.

The original negatives of these works have only recently been recovered and digitised. The collection has not previously  been exhibited. Many of these images are to be acquired for the permanent collection of the State Library of NSW.
