Sydney photographer Evan Cooper is heading to Melbourne during the Easter break to look for couples to take part in photographic exhibition The Commitment Project.

The exhibition features queer, gay and lesbian couples who have been in a committed relationship for 8.8 years or longer. The timeframe of 8.8 years is the median length of an Australian marriage.

“If queer couples can beat this statistic, we are entitled to the same legal rights and respect as heterosexual ones,” Cooper said. He urges interested couples to contact him to organise a suitable time for photos. There is no commercial motivation for the project.
