Celebrating this multiplicity is at the heart of the portraits that feature in a new exhibition by Sydney photographer Louise Whelan: African/Australians. This body of work is part of a larger project Louise has been working on for several years – to document more than 180 nationalities that live in New South Wales (NSW). Initially commissioned under the auspices of the State Library of NSW, the project has now expanded to include others states such as Queensland and Western Australia. There is also a book, New Settlers, which was released in 2013.
