In 2015 I was commissioned by the Victorian Police Museum to photograph female members.

Photographed over a 4 week period I was initially granted access to meet the women within their homes with the idea that the informal environment would allow me to create an engaging portrait. After speaking with my first subject I realised that rather than feel uncomfortable within their workspace, these women thrived on the work they did and the chance to make a difference within the community.

Photographing these women at home and in the workplace enables the viewer to not only feel a sense of connection with the women in the images but also endeavour to understand how being a Police member is more than just a vocation. The reasons these women joined the Police Force are varied but a sense of pride and confidence in their work unites them.
