Edwina Ollerenshaw

Our next contribution to the Cabinet of Curiosities this year comes from Edwina Ollerenshaw.

Edwina Ollerenshaw is an Melbourne born and raised artist and creative, and is currently studying Creative Arts at Deakin University, majoring in Photography. Having spent all her life in Melbourne, she’s grown to be a extremely keen and passionate photographer of the world around her.

Edwina’s photographic series “Deakin During Covid-19” captures the changing environment of universities amidst the global pandemic. Her photos, taken over a number of hours, depict how metropolis settings have become ghost towns, with little to no people navigating the space between class rooms at Deakin’s Burwood campus, and areas like a busy shopping precinct in Box Hill.
