Enjoy Summer Residency

18 Jan – 14 Feb 2016

Johanna Mechen

Enjoy is pleased to announce the recipient of our 2016 Summer Residency program, Johanna Mechen.


Working with local Wellington optometrists, Johanna Mechen’s project begins with investigating the phenomena of floaters—ruptured connective vessels which detach from the back of the eye casting shadows in a subjects vision—to present a poetic illustration of the relationship between photography and optometry. 

Further details of the projects development and opportunities to participate will be released in the new year.

Congratulations Johanna, we look forward to having you at Enjoy!
