A new photography exhibition in Sydney will showcase the best snaps taken by kids.
The Little Sydney Lives photography exhibition runs from September 13 to October 7 at Sandringham Gardens, Hyde Park North. It features 20 photographs taken by kids representing their life in Sydney.

Judges Ken Done, Wesley Enoch and Tamara Dean chose the images from more than 220 submissions. Each photograph showcases a unique and colourful perspective of Sydney life.
“The Little Sydney Lives photographs reflect the talent of kids who are not constantly glued to a screen – amazing patterns of shapes and colours were used as inspiration,” Ken Done says.
The incredible photos include images of the Harbour Bridge, toys and beaches.
Krish Choudhry, 11, from Holsworthy was chosen as a finalist for his photograph of autumn leaves.
“My brother and I were playing in the park when we saw these autumn leaves,” he says. “We started throwing them at each other when I decided to take a photo with my brother looking through one leaf. I find it interesting that some trees change colour in autumn.”

At the opening of the exhibition, the judges will announce the winners for the two categories – ages 3 to 7 and ages 8 to 11. The winners will each receive $500 worth of photography equipment and accessories. Little Sydney Lives is part of the City of Sydney’s year-round Art & About program of events. It will run alongside the prestigious Australian Life photography exhibition.
