Photos of the year: June

WHERE Central Private Hotel, Surry Hills. PHOTOGRAPHER Tamara Dean.

"This is 26-year-old single mother Kellie Elliott in her room at the Central Private Hotel in Surry Hills, which she had to reapply for four times during a two-week period. Each time Elliott said she moved her bags out of the hotel and went to a Housing NSW office, to demonstrate she was actively looking for a house. Then, with her two-year-old, Elliott had to check into the same hotel room again and lug their suitcases up 62 stairs."
