About the Photographer: Kimberley Low
Kimberley Low is a young documentary, food and lifestyle photographer from Sydney.
Through her various photographic projects, she explores the cultural landscape of the city and the various cultures that make up its diverse community.
Kimberley is also the co-owner of WORK Studio, and graduated from the University of Sydney with a degree in Geography and French Studies.
As a photographer, I approach my assignments with little expectations and documenting the Edgar Stephens Ward was no different.
Walking away from the experience, I was deeply moved by the bravery of the young patients and their families, who were not only open to being photographed but also incredibly welcoming and accommodating despite the gravity of what they were going through.
It was also lovely to see how the Hospital has made the environment as warm and child-friendly as possible, with colourful interiors and tons of activities and toys to make the patients’ experiences as pleasant as possible.
I would like to extend my gratitude to both the patients and the staff, and hope to be able to further document the ward in the future.
