The SOS Save Our Sirius Foundation met recently in the Phillip Room inside Sirius and Craig Hayman took the opportunity to photograph the building, its residents and those campaigning to save it.

Sirius stands between the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and it is the only high-rise building in this area. It stands as a monument to the 1970s Green Bans as well as being home to many who were displaced by The Rocks redevelopment at the time of its construction.
When construction was complete, Cherie moved to Sirius with her mother in 1980.
