Immersion is a small collection of photographs from Roseanne May’s travels through Hiroshima and the island Miyajima, while in Japan in 2016.
Roseanne’s photographs capture the viewer’s gaze, immersing them into a calm, dreamlike atmosphere, through the leafy shades of a mountain forest enveloped in fog, viewing a painterly-like scene of koi dancing beneath a blanket of black silky water, to peering through cherry blossom trees to a small family picnic. Immersion seeks to take viewers on a visual journey, carrying them away from their present surroundings.
“As a previous patient at the WCH, being in and out for seven years fighting leukaemia, I feel the exhibition is a great opportunity for me to give back to the amazing doctors, nurses and staff that helped me through that long journey. I hope that my work can help patients, families and those who work in the hospital, by giving them a quiet place to escape their current realities through the lush landscapes I have captured with photography” – Roseanne.
An emerging artist originally from Kangaroo Island but now based in Adelaide, Roseanne completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design at Adelaide College of the Arts in 2015, majoring in photography. She has previously exhibited in Australia and overseas, including at Hill Smith Gallery, Light Square Gallery, Gallery 1855 and Brunswick Street Gallery.
