Oh.Yes.Melbourne finds a new home on Urban Melbourne

Today we're welcoming the newest addition to the team: Oh Yes Melbourne.

Curated by Sydney Struwig, Oh Yes Melbourne (OYM) takes a look at the Melbourne of today and that of yesterday, with a heavy focus on visuals, drawing from Sydney's own extremely large collection of images that grows larger every day.

A flâneur with a keen photographic eye roaming around the city, Sydney & OYM will be showcasing Melbourne's urbanity with a focus on the city's streets and the scenes that are captured within them ('Why We Melbourne'), individual buildings, other urban destinations in Victoria and peering back in time with the 'Today in History' series.

Why We Melbourne 03SEP16

Oh Yes Melbourne has its own dedicated section of the site which also draws on OYM's dedicated social media presence.

As the curator, Sydney has been given editorial freedom and will be complimenting the existing Urban Melbourne publishing cycle.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture.
