Sydney’s Inner-West Flâneur

July 2013

Just back from an extended time outside of Australia, Kevin Etoné returns to his home town and the inner-west which, like the precincts of many great cities, is full of street art. This art explores the intersection of cultures, the perspectives and enthusiasm of a new generation, the global migration of ideas, and the true beauty of this area of Sydney – sad, wistful, angry, sexy, strange, and funny. All the images on this blog come from Etoné’s wanderings across the inner west in Sydney.

“The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world ‘picturesque'”.

Kevin Etoné has returned once more to the inner west after two years overseas and has started documenting the urban art he finds. He also documents the pieces that have disappeared from our streets.
