Exhibition celebrates Frankston’s heart

Frankston City is a centre of investment and redevelopment. But even with works under way and cranes in the sky, the city continues to thrive with fantastic shopping, dining, services and visitor experiences.

“This is in many parts thanks to Frankston’s heart - the tens of thousands of people who live, work and study here,” said Frankston Mayor Brian Cunial.

To celebrate, the council is combining a series of campaigns and exhibitions to bring you a collection of remarkable photographs and stories of the people you may pass on the street every day.

“One of the exhibitions is Locals of Frankston by internationally renowned photographer Richard Simpkin, who is best known for his Richard and Famous selfie series with celebrities,” Cr Cunial said.

In December 2014, Richard photographed a range of people – from residents to former mayors – to present a true snapshot of the diversity that makes Frankston such a unique bayside city.  “It promotes Frankston in a positive way and I hope we can all come together for this wonderful exhibition,” he said.

Locals of Frankston is at the Frankston Arts Centre until October 21 and will be complemented by portraits projected on to the centre’s flytower. Visit www.frankstonfaces.com for more details.
