In 2014 Melynda held a major exhibition titled ‘Punk Journey: St Kilda + Beyond’ – an exciting and all–encompassing Punk Exhibition and series of Punk events.at BRIGHTSPACE in St Kilda .

CITY FRINGE:
Thanks to this exhibition, a Producer from Channel 10 discovered Melynda’s photos, and she was soon being approached to assist them with their 2009 documentary ‘City Fringe’. Melynda was not only instrumental in coordinating all of the footage filmed in the ‘Punk’ genre, including the bands playing and the interviews, but she was also interviewed herself about the contemporary Melbourne punk scene, as well as having several of her photos being featured on the documentary.
