Cabramatta is not your typical Australian suburb. If you took a stroll through the streets of this south-western Sydney hub, you may feel like you are in Southeast Asia. However, the suburb of Cabramatta is emblematic of modern Australia – urban, busy and brimming with multicultural activity.
Sydney photographer Markus Andersen has captured this melting pot of cultures in his distinctive, street photography style. His raw, sometimes playful images show the uniquely diverse and human side of Cabramatta, seizing little moments of beauty in everyday life.
A year in the life of one of Australia’s most vivid multicultural communities, suspended in the amber of Markus Andersen’s lens.
In this new series, Markus Andersen has photographed more than the ordinary moments of suburban life. His images capture scents and sounds, vivid shades and intricate patterns, people lost in their thoughts, looking away or gazing at the camera with pride. His photographs reveal the complex and enchanting essence of a suburb that hardly divulges itself. Claire Monneraye
Born in Sydney, Markus Andersen has a passion for revealing truths and creating unexpected narratives through photography. This book has been his latest project. Andersen has held solo and collaborative exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Istanbul, Sydney and the United Kingdom, and his work is represented in private and institutional collections around the world. His first book, Rage Against The Light, was released by T&G Publishing in late 2015.
