Melanie Tanusetiawan -  known to most as Melanie T. A Melbourne based photographer and digital imaging artist who has just recently relocated to Jakarta. She graduated from RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography and is well known for her vivid dreamlike imagination.
Her photographic style, using a combination of photo media and illustrations creates ambiguity and surrealism, has differentiated her as an individual.

Her regular meditation into the ‘other’ world, allows her to see life from a different frame of mind. Her deep appreciation and love for simple living, food and people has been reflected through her lifestyle work…. portraying ‘freshness’ like a bunch of herbs, hand-picked straight from the soil. ‘Unassuming’ like the taste of crusty French .

She Started her career as a digital imaging artist and was forced to work closely with other meticulously minded creatures, such as graphic designers, photographers and creative directors. This wealth of experiences has helped her develop a strong aesthetic composition and an urge to always create a highly conceptual photographic solution.

Melanie has been actively involved in exhibitions and has won various awards and recognitions, including winner of “San Pellegrino” Award, Fashion Palette Competition, Non-commissioned winner of Australian Commercial and Media Photographers 

(ACMP) for “Bang your Drum” Exhibition. Her photography was also entitled as “Most innovative use of photomedia” at CCP Kodak Salon, Melbourne.
