Documenting life has always been Melle’s obsession.

She spent her youth pouring over her parents’ wedding photos and VHS tapes, hooked on the nostalgic pangs that swelled deep and empathic feelings. Ever since, Melle’s been harnessing the emotive power that media has to help shape public perceptions and drive positive action.

Identity, family and culture are core themes that thread through every part of Melle’s artistic practice. Her directorial work sits at the intersection of authenticity and art, bringing together real-life narratives with stylised performances to captivate, inspire and influence audiences. With an innate fascination into human behaviour and connection, Melle creates raw and honest portraits that uncover the true motivators for what drives people to do what they do.
