Following the death of Sarah Everard, it really resonated with me that my safety as a female will always be a barrier. The mundanity of the situation and the ongoing compliance to adhere to these restrictions, which dictates women's lives, was the main incentive when creating this project. The majority of women will always clench their keys, take the longest route home, or avoid the outdoors alone past daylight. These images represent the blatant reality of this overlooked and ongoing issue and make it unavoidable. Whilst photographically focusing within my local area, the territory I know best, ultimately this project conveys a universal experience of inescapable fear felt amongst all women.
