LISA WILKINSON'S WOMEN OF INFLUENCE EXHIBITION

Many of us know Lisa Wilkinson as one of Australia’s most respected storytellers.

We may remember her as editor of Dolly Magazine or in her current incarnation as co-host of the Today show.

You are hard struck to find a female who doesn’t admire Lisa Wilkinson.

Turns out, she is equally talented behind the camera…

As Canon Ambassador Lisa Wilkinson was asked to shoot black-and-white portraits of women of her choosing.

The result: stunning captures, “The who’s who of accomplishment, resilience and grace,” explained Lisa at the opening of her Women of Influence exhibition in Melbourne.

A keen amateur photographer since she was 25-years old Lisa described making the short list as imagining who would be invited to her ideal dinner party.

“I’ve been so incredibly fortunate throughout my career to be surrounded by amazing women.

Sharing their incredible stories through this exhibition in many ways feels a natural extension of everything that I’ve done in my career so far. To be able to capture all of that on film just felt like it made sense.

I love their honesty, I love their authenticity and I love that the real common denominator amongst all these women is this inner beauty that you can’t manufacture.” Lisa Wilkinson, women of influence.
