Currently on in Melbourne is a charity exhibition organised by The Jacky Winter Group along with Melbourne’s GPO . The exhibition ‘True Self’ –  links fashion, fine art and photography. The exhibition launches on Thursday May 30, and runs until Sunday June 23.

 The exhibition features 10 framed, large-scale fine art photographs by 20 of Australia’s most cutting-edge artists, including visual artistsBeci OrpinMisha HollenbachKate Tucker, and photographers Derek HendersonSean Fennessy and Jesse Marlow. The artworks will be the result of a collaboration between a visual artist and a photographer, with visual artists creating works that are then captured ‘in camera’ by a photographer. The result will be 10 original pieces of fine art photography, each drawing upon the themes of positive self-image.

 True Self visitors will also have the opportunity to buy each of the artworks in the exhibition as limited-edition A3 fine-art prints and A6 postcard packs, at MGPO’s purpose-built gallery space, designed by local studio Gloss Creative.All sales will directly benefit Fitted for Work, a not-for-profit organisation that helps women experiencing disadvantage find work.
