Welcome to Australia’s Tin City

By Brett Patman | March 5, 2018

Photographer Brett Patman of the Lost Collective captures the post-apocalyptic soul of Tin City, located near Stockton Beach in New South Wales.

TIN CITY WAS a camp made up of a community of homeless men in the late 1920’s during the Great Depression. The shacks are governed by a one hundred year lease signed in 1920 under longstanding squatters settlement, and the shacks are not owned but are privately occupied and passed down to family and friends.
