"1-V-1 me!" is a phrase commonly heard in Melbourne public housing. Every housing project has a park where reputations are built and destroyed on the daily. Heroes rise, but staying on top is where the real battle begins. For these children pictured, the playground provides a stage for their egos to clash while the streets watch on. It's about performing as much as it is winning, and how you swagger matters as much as how you play.
