Viewing a city through 123 diverse lenses

PHOTO 2022 is revitalising Melbourne CBD (and beyond) with a showcase of installations, exhibitions and walking tours from over a hundred artists.

‘Melbourne has its mojo back,’ announced Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Sally Capp at the launch of PHOTO 2022 today (28 April).

The biennial festival zooms in on the medium of photography to explore new perspectives and reactivate unusual spaces in the city.

Capp continued: ‘This is an outstanding festival in our city – PHOTO 2022 is going to knock people’s socks off … We’re again saying to the world that we are the home of the biggest collection of photography anywhere else in Australia. That’s what’s so fantastic about this festival, it really raises the profile of a form of art that is often under appreciated.’
