One hundred and sixty thousand citizens of Sydney, Australia had their faces photographed in order to make one set of composite faces for the city. See the faces of the city's neighborhoods below.

The face project was conducted at local street fairs. Sydney residents who participated filled out a consent form and had their pictures taken. Their ages ranged from two weeks to ninety-three years. Their race was more homogenous. Over fifty percent of the project participants described themselves as Anglo Saxon Celtic, while only three percent considered themselves Indigenous Australians.

Those of Chinese ancestry formed the most populous minority. While they were not much represented in the overall composite faces, they were seen in the composite faces for one Sydney neighborhood, Haymarket.
