Selected images from recent projects by Melissa Spiccia
Selected images from several projects taken during 2018. I photograph bodies. My body and bodies of others. An interest that has stemmed from a career as a contemporary dance artist. The body, I believe, has its own voice with a refusal to forget and in my photography I work with it as a malleable and intuitive tool. The first colour images are from a series titled “Haram” which looked at migration, displacement & notions of femininity. The photographs of the male body are from my series “I Made Me A Monster” which explored dynamics within an relationship and how growth and change can disrupt the balance. The last two images are from the series “Lying With Absence”.
