Months of planning had finally came to an end. Agonising over which images to enter. How and where to print them and what size to print them, had consumed us for months. Forty-eight members of the Victorian Photographers Collective were taking part. One hundred and forty five images. All this led to one hundred and four tickets sold for opening night. All of us mingling at Magnet Gallery, in the Docklands.

The theme of the exhibition – Our Great Southern Land Exhibition 2019, covered all subjects of photography. The only ‘rule’ being they had to be taken in Australia. Subject could be anything from landscape to nature, or macro, portrait or concept. The images ranged in size from A4 to panoramic, and they were presented framed, on canvas, or aluminium and acrylic.
