by Berry Street

Explore the stunning photography of a group of teenagers living in residential care with Berry Street. Aged 14 to 17, the artists cannot be named for legal reasons, but their work speaks for itself — a photographic poster mural pasted on the walls of the heritage Wigton Place laneway, expressing the tenacity of human survival in the face of extreme trauma and adversity. Berry Street was established in Melbourne in 1877, and protects babies and children at risk of infanticide, abandonment, poverty and life on the street.

About Artist

Anon is a group of anonymous youths, who cannot be identified due to their vulnerable circumstances. They are cared for by Berry Street, a community service organisation. It was established within Melbourne’s heart in 1877, to protect babies and children at risk of infanticide, abandonment, poverty and life on the street. Now in 2017, Ballarat’s Berry Street youth ‘play’ within one of its historic laneways expressing loud and clear, the tenacity of human survival.
