Melbourne Is…

June 4, 2015 - July 4, 2015

Melbourne Is …

… Not the place you might think it is. Many stereotype descriptives have been written about Melbourne. ‘The world’s most liveable city’…’Four seasons in one day’…’The garden state’… But underneath these florid statements, lies an urban subtext. – A city of counter cultures and contradictions. Melbourne is light and dark and all shades in between. Graceful buildings from our colonial past stand defiant against brave new futuristic visions. It’s home to a migrant’s tale or a cabinetmaker’s workshop. A stage for lovers’ trysts, lost souls, found treasures and sleeping rough.

IMAGE CHASERS, a three year old collective of passionate Victorian photographers, have chosen to explore different perspectives of this extraordinary city, attempting to avoid the typical tourist brochure view of Melbourne and capture a side to city that perhaps we do not always see, or simply walk past in daily life. Melbourne. A city that is so many things to so many people. A place that is as diverse as it’s 4 million plus inhabitants.
