‘The Street Wise’: An essay in words and photographs of the extraordinary people living within the City of the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia. It is a journey into the heart of a community operating on the fringes of mainstream urban society - most of whom we may not know personally, but will instantly recognize on the streets of any city - for who they are, or what they represent. Unlike many coffee table volumes, ‘The Street Wise’ completes the portrait of its subjects by adding the human side of the story. All have a public face and a story to tell.

“This book is a brave initiative: Adams photography has captured the spirit and beauty 
of each individual and together with the sensitive writing of Alan Lloyd (it) is a magnificent record of a diverse and resilient community.” –
Marie R Bashir AC CVO, Governor of NSW, December 2009

“A most moving, stimulating and inspiring collection (of portraits and words).
 Congratulations Peter and Alan.”
Mark Tedeschi, NSW Prosecutor, Sydney
