Keep Her Unnoticed by Maria Falconer

The Keep Her Unnoticed photography project by photographer Maria Falconer is a body of work surrounding the subject of domestic violence. This project shows the fear, violence and low self-esteem that women experience after being in an abusive relationship.

Falconer used body languages to portray emotional aspects into her images. In the above image shows a woman is slung over a banister along with the other possessions a man has left there, just like an object waiting to be used. In another image, we can see a woman falling in a train track, an action that suggests powerlessness and lack of confidence.

“Photography is not just a job, it’s my passion; The camera is not just a mirror, it’’s a creative tool; Creativity plus passion equals unique images.” – Maria Falconer
