Livingston Armytage writes…

I’m very pleased (and relieved) to report that “Homeless: Hidden in plain sight” is published at last. In this book, I portray the lives of Sydney’s homeless with dignity, identity and voice. This book will give viewers an opportunity to see these people with understanding rather than ignoring or judging them as losers or ‘dole bludgers’.


It is available in Australia/Europe at:, and in the US/Canada at: Chatwin Books. All proceeds donated to the ‘Matthew Talbot Shelter’ for the homeless in Sydney, Australia.

More information on the publishers’ websites, above; and also at: .

Livingston Armytage is an Australian photographer who has worked in more than 50 countries mainly across Asia in places far beyond the tourist path. His photographs take the viewer behind the postcard view to illuminate and show the lives of others…
