This image is a portrait of a resident of a private Melbourne hotel that provides accommodation for a transitioning sector of the population. The resident is photographed with a blanket covering their face and upper body. The work communicates invisibility but does so in a context where anonymity and retreat from social dialogue are obviously connected to social inequality. Conceptually the idea of retreat is a temporary position of choice, however in this image the retreat extends forever, locked within the frame.
