Johanna Mechen will be speaking on Friday at Massey as part of the Telling Stories Panel Discussion

Johanna Mechen works with still and moving images exploring the relationship between art, photography and science, in particular how community participation can play a role in site based investigations.

Her recent work has focused on this engagement in order to tell ecological, historical and culture stories - while extending the photographic mediums ability to communicate and be experienced, both through and beyond it’s many processes.

She completed a Masters of Fine Art program at Massey University Wellington in 2014 and her practice has included exhibiting, curating, writing and teaching photography.
