Tranby Centre, Perth, Western Australia
She was approaching the front door of UnitingCare West's Tranby Centre one morning, as the sun rose over Perth, in Western Australia...so i asked her to smile.
🙏❤️ This is #2 of 5, in our collaboration with UCW and their #TransformTranby initiative. The images are part of the #EndHomelessnessWA campaign, and were made in Perth, at UCW's inner city 'Tranby' centre.
I spent two days there talking to and making images of people who were till then strangers to me. This mini-series coincidentally also marks so i asked them to smile's 300th smile.
Overall the vast majority of visitors I met, regardless of the challenge that brought them to Tranby, were open and happy to talk to me with an honesty I found deeply refreshing. I thank them for their time.
With this series I hope to support UnitingCare West's efforts to dignify all humanity, especially those on the very edges of our system. Please visit their website to know more: https://bit.ly/2JE8njM ❤️🙏
