Exhibition Description

As the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation's photographer-in-residence since 2012, Jimmy Pozarik has given visual insight into the incomprehensible world of seriously ill children through his photos. Revisiting 25 patients from past projects, Pozarik captures the unique moments that reflect their Hospital experience, telling their stories through the eye of the lens, then and now. 

A whole spectrum of narratives are shared; Fleeting Hospital encounters that were barely thought of again, traumatic accidents, miracle survivals, medical journeys that will last a lifetime, and even ones that have ended too soon. Whether happy or sad, every image is significant, and together they are a true reflection of the diversity that graces a place like Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
