Exhibitionist / by Mario Mirabile

I’ve been making something of an exhibition of myself lately.

Firstly, I was very fortunate to be invited to be part of the “Melbourne - City and People” exhibition at the National Library of Russia in St Petersburg in April. Ten of my images of Melbourne were shown as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of the sister city relationship between Melbourne and St Petersburg. While I wasn’t able to be there in person, I understand the exhibition was a great success.

While that’s been and gone, I’m also currently part of the SITHOM (Shot in the Heart of Melbourne) exhibition. The exhibition has work from members of the Australian Association of Street Photographers and features images shot in central Melbourne. It’s well worth a look for a chance to see how different people view the city we locals think we know so well. It’s showing until June 10th at Victorian Artists Society gallery at 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne, which is a lot easier to get to than St Petersburg.

The first set below were my St Petersburg images, and the second set the SITHOM images.
