‘Life: Up Close and In Focus’ is an exhibition of the macro photographic studies of Meaghan Lyon’s favourite subject – Australian Flora.
For many years, her friends and family received greeting cards decorated with her photos and, since her suicide in 2016, these cards have become very precious mementos. Coinciding with Mental Health Week this exhibition is part of Meg’s legacy and is being held to give formal recognition to her photographic ability and also to help visitors to the exhibition become more comfortable in talking about mental health and suicide. All proceeds from the sale of these limited edition photos will be donated to Jesuit Social Services Support After Suicide program.
