A Woman Walks Alone At Night, With a Camera features photographs by Ruby Wallis and an essay by Phillina Sun, centered around the experience of walking at night as a woman. Designed by Eimearjean McCormack, the publication links to image and text through the figure of the flâneuse, framed here as a subversive, imaginative explorer who wanders the city according to her desire, deterritorialising an urban landscape traditionally seen as a male domain.
The publication visually and poetically engages with psychogeography through a feminist lens, thus addressing an urgent need for liberating representations constructed by a female gaze that confronts the issues women face when they walk in the city day or night.
