Merry Images is a proud partner of Sisterworks.
It was my absolute privilege to offer my services as a photographer for Sisterworks recently when they called out for some product photography for their press releases.
SisterWorks is a non-profit social enterprise ‘Handmade with Love in Melbourne’. SisterWorks supports women who are migrants, asylum seekers or refugees to become financially independent and happily settled in Australia.
They have a great shopfront in Richmond that has beautiful homewares that are indeed ‘Handmade with Love in Melbourne’. Photographing products that are made with sustainability, community culture at the forefront of their social enterprise.
The women that SisterWorks works with are the most vulnerable migrants. They have been marginalised due to a lack of identity, language barriers, lack of western culture knowledge, poor employment skills and being the carers of their families. They face long-term unemployment which exacerbates social issues. With on-going support, this vulnerability can be lifted and not become a lifetime issue.
