Dr Tricia King is a Lecturer in Photography in the School of Business and Creative Industries at the University of the Sunshine Coast and active documentary photographer. Her research focuses on photography, its role in personal and cultural memory, and the construction of identity.
Utilising techniques like photo-elicitation, documentary and collaborative photography, Tricia develops collaborative participant driven projects working predominantly with people experiencing social isolation.
Most recently she has worked with older people living in aged care to explore their lived experience and help develop programs to assist with greater socialisation. She is working to expand this project to include other communities and will work with participants on further co-curated exhibition projects.
Tricia also collaborates on immersive site-specific work which explores different environments and wildlife to create virtual visual and listening experiences.
