Here is a large-format photographic book that defies the traditional concept of a book for charity. The ingredients: Take four Australian professional fashion and portrait photographers - Gary Heery, Grant Matthews, Hugh Stewart and Paul Westlake - and have them mentor three amateurs - visitors to the Wayside Chapel in Sydney's King's Cross - and the result is a collection of unexpected images celebrating humanity. Accompanying the superb black and white and some colour photography are selected Stories from the Inner Circle, the name of the weekly email written by the Wayside's quietly charismatic Reverend Graham Long. The emails, written over a period of two years, reveal all aspects of life at the Wayside, and the reader will discover that people from all walks of life suffer similar problems as they go about their daily life.The Wayside Chapel is currently undergoing a major refurbishment of their renowned site in Hughes Street, Kings Cross, the heart of Sydney. This book is also a social document of the building in its last days.
