Radical Sydney: Places, Portraits and Unruly Episodes
Sydney is variously promoted to the world by commercial and political PR-spinners as 'a cosmopolitan city', 'a global city', 'an economic powerhouse', 'the business gateway to Australia'. In a forest pf glossy publications and on a deluge of websites, attendant photographs reduce the city to the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, and the concrete and glass eyries of the Central Business District, all drenched in sunlight and framed by the digitally enhanced blues of Sydney's harbour and sky.
