Territories: Brenda Francis Pelkey explores spaces where women are discouraged from going via the documentary photography of Pelkey; from the eerie beauty of floodlit forests at night, to the stark sight of empty seats at a strip club.
In addition to questioning which spaces are available to women as viewers, Pelkey is known for her expansion of public understanding of what documentary photography can do. Her images of forests at night-time evoke the enchanted woods of childhood stories as much as they reveal the crisp reality of the natural forms that they depict.
This lavishly produced, full-colour hardback edition will bring a new generation of feminist art enthusiasts to Pelkey’s images, captured over her career.
Territories: Brenda Francis Pelkey is edited by Catharine M. Mastin, Director of Art Gallery of Windsor.
