“Through persistence and curiosity, Amin gained the trust of residents to share their human stories of hardship. Amin’s investigation empowered them to fight for their homes inside one of Sydney’s last long-term caravan parks. This story is a lesson in compassionate reporting, while also challenging the park’s wealthy investor’s financial history. A perfectly captured portrait of humanity.”
