The 14th annual Women Photographers' exhibition is now open at Magnet Galleries Melbourne until 24 February 2024.
The opening was a wonderful event with music and many of the participating photographers attending.
'Journeys' is the theme for the 2024 exhibition. Interpretation was open to the photographer.
Traditionally the annual Women Photographers' exhibition is a fundraiser and this year it will benefit the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
One of my three photographs in the show titled 'Early morning arrival at Station Pier' is a large-scale work (1.2m wide), expertly printed on Sihl baryta satin paper by Photonet Fine Art Printing.
Here is a glimpse of the image:

Station Pier (formerly Railway Pier) has heritage status. It has been operating for over 160 years in both war and peace - from the arrivals for the Gold Rush in the mid-1850's to Australian troops leaving for war in the 1940s to generations of new migrants arriving by passenger ships. Today it is a cruise ship terminal.
The women photographers showing their works in the exhibition have interpreted the theme of journeys widely. Please come and visit. I will be in the gallery on Saturday 17 February from 2 - 4pm.
