SUNSTUDIOS, backed by Canon Australia, today[1] opens to the public its 12th annual This Time It’s Personal 2023 exhibition. Showcasing top Australian photography talent, the exhibition provides a unique insight into what industry professionals are passionate about capturing outside of their commercial work. All photographs donated by the artists are available for purchase as a print at a discounted rate, and are brought to life by SUNSTUDIOS’ print specialist, Selena Simpson, who uses state-of-the-art Canon print facilities.

Featuring 76 unique photographs with contributions from well-renowned Australian photographers including Hugh Stewart, Emily Abay, Gary Heery and Vicki Lee, 100% of the print sale proceeds will be donated to the GO Foundation.

Go Foundation co-founder, Adam Goodes comments, “The GO Foundation seeks to create opportunities for First Nations children and young people through education with bespoke scholarship programs. Thanks to supporters like SUNSTUDIOS, Canon Australia and all of the artists who kindly donated their work, This Time It’s Personal raised $20,000 last year helping us to continue delivering on our mission to empower through education. We’re thrilled that SUNSTUDIOS is supporting GO once again with this year’s exhibition.”

Luke Harrison, Head of SUNSTUDIOS says of the exhibition, “This Time It’s Personal brings the imaging industry together for an important cause. The exhibition provides an incredible opportunity to enjoy and purchase, at an affordable price, exclusive artwork by the industry’s highly respected photographers including Hugh Stewart, Emily Abay, Gary Heery and Vicki Lee. We are truly thankful to the talented photographers who generously donated their works and hope to exceed last year’s fundraising figure to help Go Foundation with their First Nations youth education programs.”

This Time It’s Personal 2023 Exhibition until 2 December 2023. Entry is free of charge.
