One of the main issues Mesić brings in to question is how we, as humans, deal with the idea of invisibility and how this reflects on the world we live in. We tend to project desires and fears onto invisible worlds and as such it becomes a reflection of our inner selves. This curiosity stems from a subjective personal experience with the invisible which is then concentrically expanded and manifests itself as an ongoing investigation of the nature of reality. Is it out there or is it a construct of our minds?
Recently she has been focusing on projects that question the role of photography. In these new projects (taking place most recently in Rwanda and Sao Paulo) she explores the capacity of photography to make the world a better place and searches for means how to do so.
After her graduation from the Master Photography at the AKV|St.Joost in Breda she was immediately long-listed for the Dutch Doc Award. After that she was selected for Winherthur’s Plat(t)form 2013 and nominated for the New Talent Photography Award ING. Meanwhile she exhibited in The Hague, New York, Tokyo, Kigali, Sao Paolo and Zagreb.
