Canon Australia’s photography exhibition to raise $20,000 for education charity

< 1 min read

 SUNSTUDIOS, backed by Canon Australia, were delighted to bring back the This Time It’s Personal photography exhibition to raise $20,000 for education charity, GO Foundation. 

Curated by Nicky Catley, Group Picture Editor at Australian Geographic, the exhibition featured 64 unique photographs by some of Australia’s most renowned photographers, whose work was sold at a discount rate to support the worthy cause. 

A total of 38 works were sold, and all funds raised were donated directly to the GO Foundation which was founded by former AFL players, Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin to create opportunities for Indigenous youth through education and bespoke scholarship programs. The total raised by the 2022 exhibition will help the charity fund primary school through to tertiary students in Sydney, Adelaide and Canberra.

“The exhibition provided an opportunity for Sydney to connect back into its art scene, while also giving back to the community. We’re delighted to be able to provide a platform for professional photographers to shoot out of love and passion, rather than work,” said Luke Harrison, Head of SUNSTUDIOS.

Harrison highlighted that they have used the exhibition as an opportunity to raise funds for a select charity each year and  were delighted to be able to partner with The GO Foundation for the latest installment of ‘This Time It’s Personal’.

“With supporters like SUNSTUDIOS, Canon Australia and all of the artists who have so generously donated their work, our joint ambition is to see GO thrive so that we can deliver on our mission to empower through education,” said Charlene Davison, GO Foundation CEO.

“Our Program includes cultural and aspirational connection days, access to professional opportunities and services through our Partners and a financial scholarship. We thank everyone who has supported This Time It’s Personal for their generosity.”
