Humans of Kings Cross

The Humans of Kings Cross photo exhibition takes a first-hand look at the colourful people who call The Cross home, with a particular focus on the Wayside community.

Kings Cross is a rich tapestry of stories, from the familiar faces weathered from a life on the streets to the successful Potts Point business leaders struggling with their own internal chaos.

Nowhere else in Sydney does such a diverse cross-section of society coincide than in the heart of Kings Cross. And to celebrate our fascinating community we’ve been collecting some of the stories that have touched our hearts. Stories that show struggle, determination and the ways in which we’re all connected by the human spirit.

Our photographer is the award winning Katherine Williams of Katherine Williams Photography, who has volunteered her time to beautifully capture our visitors and their stories.

Join us for our Humans of Kings Cross photo exhibition, and prepare to laugh, cry and be inspired. Our opening night is Tuesday 12 May from 6pm-8pm, when you can be one of the first to peruse the photos and hear first-hand from our photographer about the process. To RSVP for our opening night, please email Eimear Elkington.

We are using this photo exhibition not only as a way to celebrate the beauty we see every day but to raise funds for our Community Services Centre which provides over 29,000 instances of support each year. We are aiming to raise $30,000, directly to fund the centre. For $1000 you can sponsor any one of the photos either personally or from an organisation. 100% of the donation will go directly to Wayside’s Community Service Centre and help support the most marginalised members of our community. For more information, please contact Liz Osachuk.
