Do you have one?

Mental Health issues are very much at the top of news, current affair shows and stories that we see in the media. But what if the old saying of "a picture is worth a thousand words" is true and pictures or large photographic works are able to express so much more than words? What if our deepest fears appeared in these photographs?

Now you can see such photographs depicting some of our greatest fears in Phobias a laneway exhibition. Nine artists from Stills Co-op have created images which portray some common as well as less-known phobias.

A phobia, in its extreme case, is considered an unreasonable fear which can turn into a disability when it affects people's everyday lives. Each of the images on display will provide a description and explanation of the phobia that it depicts.

This exhibition draws attention to this little known or discussed aspect of mental health and provides an opportunity for the public to view images from the Stills Co-op artists and provide some key talking points. Stills Co-op is made up of professional photographers who work in publishing, journalism and advertising, as well as teachers from various universities and graduates of RMIT photography courses.

Lang's Lane
connects Bourke St and Little Bourke Street and is between King and Spencer Streets. The first part of the lane must be the narrowest lane in Melbourne!
