5pm Thursday February 2nd 2012. Exhibition runs until February 29.
In her first-ever solo show, Cheech Sanchez presents a series of photographic portraits of female sneaker enthusiasts taken exclusively for the recently released international sneaker book, Girls Got Kicks. The photo series has since developed into a unique snapshot of female street culture in Melbourne. Juxtapozing feminine curves against the graffiti-laden laneways and back streets of Fitzroy and St Kilda, the exhibition is set to throw a bright spotlight on an otherwise elusive group of uniquely Melbournian women.
The opening night - hosted by Melbourne’s very own sneaker queen,M.A.F.I.A. - is also the official Australian launch for Girls Got Kicks (by Lori Lobenstine and Amanda Lopez -www.girlsgotkicks.com). The first ever photo documentary of badass female sneaker heads, Girls Got Kicks bursts with portraits and stories as rich and varied as their ever-growing sneaker collections.
