Helping people help themselves
Soon to be performing in Australia, Katy Perry is a pop superstar. She’s also talented and tireless. But what lies behind her lurid, carefully constructed persona?
Also in this issue:
Norah Scott-Norman tells a tale of when tradition met modernity in 1950s East Africa; Sue Jackson wrestles with preconceptions about sumo culture; we look at Linda Tirado’s account of being poor in a wealthy world; and in ‘Roving Eye’, David Rennie turns a negative into a positive while photographing a beautiful, and threatened, part of Western Australia.
The star of this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Mark from Adelaide. And in ‘Streetsheet’ we have a sneak peek of this years’ calendar, which will not only have cartoons from Andrew Weldon, but will include photos of vendors and their pets. To celebrate, we have pet-themed contributions from Cindy in Brisbane; Sharon and Doug in Melbourne; and Michelle and Glenn F in Sydney. We also have a contribution and photos of Cougar and Miss Devine, the beloved cats of vendor Cheryl from Melbourne.
