The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people
“Faces of Wyndham” is a project that aims to celebrate the cultural diversity of Wyndham by profiling residents, the traditional
owners of the land and residents from diverse nations who have emigrated to Wyndham and contributing to its community. The
project aims to invite 100 Wyndham residents, representing diverse cultures to the studio to have their portrait taken and share their
personal stories and their achievements and why they call Wyndham home.As a portrait photographer, I am fascinated by different
cultures. I have always felt a thrill in capturing the essence of people’s journeys through my lens. I genuinely believe portraits can
make you look deep inside a person’s soul and weave an undefinable connection. And so, I want to put the spotlight on Wyndham
residents to share their aspirations for life in Australia. By doing so, I desire to break the stereotype that immigrants do not
assimilate with people outside their communities. I want to show that this is not true and that many immigrants contribute much to
the community. Where possible, the subjects shall wear their traditional dresses from their home country to showcase the multiple
cultural backgrounds that are now a part of Wyndham. If you wish to be a part of this project and have a unique cultural story that
can inspire others, you can submit your applications to me.I am very excited about this project and looking forward to work on more
such powerful ventures that can leave a mark and make you see the world through a different lens.
Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity.
