Lariane Fonseca

Lariane Fonseca was born in Bombay, India in 1951 and now lives in Geelong, Australia. She is a photographer and digital storyteller. Exhibitions of her work held in Australia have been a resounding success. She is currently undertaking her PhD using narrative inquiry and innovative means of recording data through digital story telling and photography, to investigate ideas of dislocation and the impact that leaving one's own culture has on the development of one's self identity. Her photographic book, If Passion Were a Flower… is inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf and the paintings of Georgia O’Keefe. She works in the Faculty of Life and Social Science at Swinburne University, Melbourne.
