The local exhibition putting Melbourne's homeless behind the camera

See the world from their eyes. 

Melbourne's homeless community are in danger of becoming invisible citizens. We discuss what to do with them and how to enact policies that affect their lives – but how often do we hear from the viewpoint of homeless citizens themselves? This exhibition aims to change that. 
 
The HoMie StreetView exhibition explores the often unspoken world of our homeless community. Seven Melburnians currently experiencing homelessness were asked to capture their life on the street via disposable cameras.
 
The photographs have been turned into a public art exhibition, which will be held at Collingwood’s Besser Space during September.
 
Each photograph on display is also up for sale, with 100 percent of the sale price donated to the artist via St Mary’s House of Welcome.
 
Entry is just a gold coin donation and will include wine from Vinomofo and some tasty fish and chips from Hunky Dory.

HoMie's StreetView exhibition goes down at Besser Space Gallery from Thursday September 14 - Saturday September 16.
