This photographic project is an elegy to a fallen street-based sex-worker and the town of St Kilda. It invokes the genre of paranormal photography to observe a re-visitation of moments and places, like an envisioned environmental portrait of an invisible subject.
Pseudonym presents a series of photographs that act as visual markers, based on accounts, experiences and locations frequented by an individual that remains nameless. These ordinary and commonplace scenes represent an inner, psychological perspective, as if there is always someone present in the picture, urging to be seen.
“Without direct experience, it’s impossible to really judge where another person is in their life; their physical reality and appearance remain a mystery. Unless our attention and sympathy are drawn by certain facts, stories, revelations, impressions...we are literally, bystanders.”
