I began my lockdown walks by taking a closer look at my neighbourhood, creating collections of images under the series title The Road To Wellville.
I curated this particular collection around the colour red, but realise it appears to show elements of a crime scene, with undertones of the movies Blow Up and Don’t Look Now.
In hindsight I believe I have subconsciously responded to a real crime I witnessed early in lockdown, the memory of which I tried to suppress.
Researchers from Counting Dead Women project reported to MPs that in the first three weeks of lockdown 14 women and two children had been killed.
Your Sanctuary is one of the charities working to help people suffering from domestic violence.

      Thank you Gerry. I was really surprised when this series came together. As you know, incidents of domestic violence aren’t just a product of Covid, but the pandemic is heightening this terrible crime. Pleased to be able to highlight your adopted charity.

    loving this Wendy – I feel i need to see it in a different guise too – like as prints on a wall. I think the images would be more powerful if they had more space to breathe, because they’re so aesthetically pleasing to see, but then also have quite strong undercurrent tones with the feeling of women being watched/followed.

      Thanks Charlie. Wasn’t planned, just came together in the editing. I was actually quite shocked with what I had created, as it was so close to the crime I had heard, but not seen. Terrifying moment, had to call police.
