Hammerfest by Dr Suzanne Mashtoub.

Weaving rich tapestries of interconnectedness, ‘Invisible Threads’ provides a sense of belonging, community and place. Explore the connections with each other, the Earth and the universe.

Dr Suzanne Mashtoub is passionate about photography, completely self-taught and travels the world to capture just the right image. Her travels have taken her on solo journeys to Iceland, Mongolia, Kenya, Greenland Jordan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Norway – to name a few. Her images capture the imagination of nature, some of which provide different aspects on the seasons from country to country and from day to night. The Lights of Day photograph was taken in Hammerfest, the northernmost city in the world and although it looks like a scene in the night, it was taken at midday during the Scandinavian winter.

When Dr Mashtoub isn’t on adventures around the globe taking breathtaking photographs, she is leading a research group at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Gastroenterology Department, investigating the use of emu oil in intestinal disorders. Emu oil was first used by Aboriginal Australian people to provide relief from pain, promote wound healing and treat inflamed joints. Her team specialises in pre-clinical models of intestinal disorders, recently extending their promising findings into a world-first clinical trial. Dr Mashtoub is a Senior Lecturer at the Adelaide Medical School and recently completed her NHMRC Postdoctoral Biomedical Fellowship.

In 2018, Dr Mashtoub was the recipient of the WCH Foundation Talent Within Award. This award provided exhibition guidance and financial support for her to undertake this solo exhibition in 2019. Dr Mashtoub is very excited to present Invisible Threads, as a part of the SALA program, and hopes the images help to transport the viewer to ‘travel’ on some of her amazing journeys.

WCH Foundation is pleased to recognise this exhibition for Mental Health Week 2019. This year the focus is to Mind Your Health. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Let’s take care of it together.
