“Sydney Life is a wonderful example of taking art out of traditional galleries and into new and different places like Sydney’s parks, laneways and squares,” said Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP.
“I hope photographers across Sydney let their imaginations run wild as they capture what Sydney means to them and help breath fresh artistic life into our public spaces.”
Last year Sydney Life attracted more than 500 entries – images ranged from a showgirl driving down Elizabeth Street and a refugee from Sierra Leone, to prized Charolais bulls and a modern day Ken and Barbie.
The winner was amateur Bondi photographer Nicholas May, whose stunning black and white image “Australia Day, 2010” depicted dozens of Sydneysiders trying to cool off on the rocks above Bondi Beach on a scorching summer’s day.
