When A Woman Walks Alone At Night

Posted by Social Media on 06/11/2019 5:30:00 PM
PSC's Bachelor of Photography graduate, Sally Kaack's latest photobook, is inspired by historical and current attacks on women travelling alone after dark. Her images in 'The Night Is Still The Same' takes the audience on a journey through the eyes of a woman who has been taught by society to fear night fall, if she is on her own. Her freedom to explore this space has been taken away.
 
Through light and form, Sally depicts mundane night time suburbia, as a place that is alienating, menacing and a projection of her inner fears. Influenced by two prominent Japanese artists, her photobook is currently being shown at an exhibition of prints and photobooks by PSC, held at the Consulate General of Japan in Melbourne.
