Art has always been a part of Melanie's life. Born and raised in Newcastle, Australia, studied and worked in Fine Arts, Melanie rediscovered photography twenty years later, after almost losing her life. Through strangers on the street, Melanie creates scenarios, exploring people existing at the intersection of reality and fiction. Her photography is usually darkly humorous and is intended to provide a somewhat psychological portrayal of her escape from her own everyday reality.
