Yesterday I took a trip into the city to look at an exhibition my friend Christine Wilson is in at the moment. It is the annual SITHOM, or Shot in the Heat of Melbourne, show.
I was in the show a couple of years ago, but I don’t really think of myself as a street photographer, so it didn’t seem right. It was interesting to see, this year, that a lot of photos were devoid of people and they weren’t necessarily the main focus. I might have to reconsider being a part of it for next year. It was a great mix of street images around Melbourne, some concentrating on the human factor, while others showed Melbourne as it is. There is something there for everyone.
It is a great show and the gallery looks fantastic. If you are in Melbourne you have the weekend to go and see it. Maybe buy an image of Melbourne.
The exhibition finishes on Monday, so this weekend is your best opportunity to see it. It is being held in the Victorian Artists Society, upstairs. The address is 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne. It is open from 1pm to 4pm on the weekends, and today, plus on Monday will be open 10am to 4pm.
Here is a link if you would like more information, SITHOM.
While I was there I took some photos of the exhibition to give you an idea of what you might see.
