People of the west is the outcome of a documentary photographic project – a glimpse of some of the faces and stories of Melbourne's western suburbs.

People of the West is a result of a nine-week unit of study undertaken by Victoria University Early Uni Pathways students.

Students engage with ideas of anthropology,ethnography and the role photography has played in these discipline areas, resulting in a photographic exhibition.

This project was undertaken by students in the Early Uni Pathways program at Victoria University. Students have examined the ethics of documentary photography and undertaken their own ethnographic photographic and interview project.
