Shot in the Heart of Melbourne

Held annually since 2012, “Shot in The Heart of Melbourne” or SITHOM is a Street Photography and Photojournalism exhibition that celebrates the decisive, and often indecisive, but always graceful moments that occur within our gritty, yet beautiful city.

The exhibition showcases many beautiful captures from a number of diverse and enthusiastic photographers who have focused on the eclectic hub that our city is today, … “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”.

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.
