Red light darkroom

My classmate, Grace Wood, invited me to yesterday’s book launch and opening of the exhibition 'Red light darkroom'  held at the Alliance Française.

Grace was the assistant of Gemma-Rose Turnbull who did a residency with St Kilda Gatehouse to teach, photograph and interview street sex workers. This exhibition includes a video and photographs of the day-to-day lives of street sex workers. The colour photographs spoke for themselves; they were graphic and powerful. At times, I found the accompanying text lengthy. Overall, I would recommend the exhibition to anyone interested in documentary-style photography.
