UTS Library hosted a photographic exhibition of selected works by Therese Sweeney - On the Fringes: South West Sydney 1994-2014. The freely available, online collection explores social history and cultural life on the outskirts of South-Western Sydney. Recorded through photography, audio interviews, and video footage, the collection documents the communities of Green Valley and its traditional market gardening communities.

“My motivation was to challenge and redress the long history of negative press and social research depicting my community of origin as bleak and desperate. I aimed to produce images that were born out of collaboration, research, respect and relationship with residents." - Therese Sweeney, photographer.
