To celebrate the launch of SBS’s new drama series, Sunshine, SBS teamed up the Centre for Contemporary Photography and Brimbank City Council to give eight aspiring photographers a chance to tell the story of their community through images.
Over the period of one month, and three workshops which introduced conceptual and technical photographic techniques, the emerging artists developed a photographic series with the guidance of expert CCP tutor Linsey Gosper and celebrated artists Ben King and Atong Atem. With photo stories capturing a fusion of cultures, hidden stories, the beauty of everyday life and its natural surrounds, from transformations to transportation, delicious cuisines, and rich community heritage – each story is truly unique and captures the essence of what makes this community so vibrant. Everyone has a story to tell. These are their stories.
The exhibition is currently on display at the Brimbank Community and Civic Centre, level 1, 301 Hampshire Road, Sunshine, Victoria, until 30 November 2017. Follow #SunshinePhotoProject on Instagram.
