By using an inside-out approach to record the lives of thirteen
working girls from Kings Cross, Cruising provides a very immediate
and visceral experience of their everyday realities, shocking truths
and relentless dreaming.
The photo journalistic approach reveals a confronting physicality that
comes with intimacy at a price, while the Kings Cross streetscapes are
taken through dirty car windows and isolates the objectified in what seems a dangerously surreal world.
What is truly revealing about this project is the endearing commentary from the participants, their insights allow the viewer to connect with a familiar truth a sad yet cathartic realisation that their dreams that keep them sane and, like all of us, its their familiar contradictions that define us.
