Lyndal Irons - Our favourite photographer has an exhibition!

Followers of Ginny & Jude fashions will be very familiar with the work of Lyndal Irons - she has shot our past three collections and even the opening to our pop-up shop at Gaffa Gallery last year. As we at G&J are rather ridiculous perfectionists, you can be certain that we think Lyndal's skills behind the lens are second to none.

And, naturally, her talents extend far further than the realms of fashion, and we invite all of you to join us in celebrating her new exhibition 'Parramatta Road' opening this Wednesday June 1st at Global Gallery in Paddington.

We all know and love / loathe the great throbbing artery of traffic which is Parramatta Road. In various states of decay and decadence it hosts a curious mix of pompous bridal shops, ghostly long disused shopfronts and the ever ubiquitous caryards. In Lyndal's eyes, "they form a living museum of greater Sydney: its affluence, issues and heritage. Few brave the smog to discover the road’s treasures". And this exhibition documents street scenes and businesses to preserve an important place perpetually threatened by change.
Certainly what we have been privileged enough to see so far has been rather spectacularly moving, so we can only hope for what this final cut will hold!
