My Name is Jane

About the

My Name Is Jane is an ongoing artistic and anthropological study of one of the world’s most common and often misunderstood names.

From scientists to students, actors to activists, the Janes we have interviewed and photographed across Melbourne, Paris and London show us that there is nothing plain about being a Jane.

We celebrated the first 60 Janes who took part in our project with an exhibition in October 2017 at Rokeby Studios Melbourne.

In August 2019, we head to Stockholm in search of Scandinavian Janes. If you happen to be a Swedish Jane (or know of one) we’d love to hear from you.

Stay tuned …
