Free photography exhibition celebrating Melbourne's streets

The 8th annual Shot in the Heart of Melbourne (SITHOM) exhibition returns to the Victorian Artists' Society in East Melbourne this May.

Proudly presented by the Australian Association of Street Photographers under the banner of SITHOM, this exciting exhibition brings together the stunning works of passionate, amateur photographers, who explore the streets of the City of Melbourne in their own unique way.

Adrian Whearby - Design

A regular feature on Melbourne's photography exhibition calendar, SITHOM celebrates the decisive, and often indecisive, but always graceful moments that occur within our gritty, yet beautiful city.

Come and explore the clash of Victorian and modern architecture, a selection of the state's most recognisable attractions, our vibrant street art and public art scene and the ever-changing cultural landscape.

Mark Lourensz - Chinatown

SITHOM is a celebration of Melbourne in pictures. In recent times it has seemed that this time-honoured, traditional art form of Street Photography has been overshadowed by the flood of the more contemporary staged, set-up, composite, digitally manipulated and heavily processed genres of photography.

Those who love this genre of photography know the feeling of elation when they capture something truly unique, fleeting, decisive and graceful.

Peter Waters

The displayed works are for sale directly from the photographers and through the gallery.

The exhibition will be held in the beautiful Frater, Hammond and McCubbin galleries at the historic Victorian Artists Society building from 30th May to 10th June 2019.

Entry is free.

"These photos are not just street style; they capture ephemeral moments – raw, unrehearsed and completely unique. Shot in the heart of Melbourne is an artistic candid homage to the people that bring this city to life each day." – Concrete Playground
