Invisible not I (2018)
As I search for images of women over fifty in both the visual arts and literature who may reflect my current experience, I realise that they are not to be found, or so rarely that they may not exist. Photography is a practice of looking and seeing, showing, revealing, but it may be that it is through absence that we see things more clearly.
Could being invisible provide a strategy for the construction of an identity no longer dependent on any gaze, other than that of the female self embarking on the ‘dangerous age’? (Greer 1991)
