“Bordered Lives” a photographic project with young people living in temporary accommodation was exhibited in Bus Shelters in Sydney CBD and at The Australian Museum, Sydney. The main objective of Bordered Lives was to encourage teenagers to re-engage with the education system through an arts practice and to communicate issues around homelessness to a broad audience from the perspective of the homeless youth.
Sue developed Imagine Me with funding from a Delineate grant, Accessible Arts in partnership with Don’t DIS My ABILITY Campaign sponsored by NSW Government, FACS.

She has worked for interior designers, architects, property development and high-end real estate properties and retail furniture stores where the work involves styling for the shoot as well as the photographic expertise.
