Through the eyes of a sista…

I have long held the belief that everyone is creative. We all have a spark of inspiration and innovation within us, we just need to give ourselves the opportunity to fan the flame and let that spark come to life. And that is certainly what visitors to The Sista Code photo exhibition have seen with 40 works by a range of women (and one ‘bro’) on display: a whole exhibition of photographic interpretation and creativity.

‘Through the eyes of a sista…’ showcases a collection of photographic images that were selected from an online photo competition that ran during October and November this year.

A different theme was announced at the beginning of each week for seven weeks: Sista; Circle; Shine; Look Up; On the Street; This made me smile; and Calm. Various judges selected six images submitted via Instagram for each theme.

The exhibitors were: Andreas Prosser, Angie Sinclair, Donna Shepherd, Grace McLean, Karen Seymour, Kelli Price, Kristy Whalan, Karen O’Brien, Lou Morrissey, Louise Faulkner, Maree Browning, Melissa Histon, Michelle Faithfull, Rebecca Wilson, Sarah Adams, Stephanie Owen, Tanya Lawrence and Toni Lundy.

What I love most about the exhibition is that the exhibiting photographers ranged from serious photography enthusiasts using the latest DLSRs to hobbyists with their iPhones; illustrating that art is for everyone and need not be elitist.

After nearly three weeks, The Sista Code photo exhibition, ‘Though the eyes of a sista…’ is coming to a close. Approximately 700 people have visited the exhibition during the three weeks, with much positive feedback and a few photography sales!

Congratulations to all the exhibitors!
