Leski

Kieron Nolan

Belair, Australia

Artist's Description

This grafitti is to be found on the wall where a teenage boy was knifed to death in Adelaide. As part of my work I walked to different parts of Adelaide with young people who had been or who are homeless. Using Fuji compact cameras they photographed areas that meant something to them, either places they’d slept rough, grafitti or places they would hang out.

Their stories of survival were shocking.

We printed their photos and put them on display in the city centre, where they were able to talk to members of the public about homelessness.

Leski was a friend of some of the people I worked with.

When I get permission I hope to put up more pictures I took of the project. Most are of the young people photographing places of meaning to them.
