Many of Sally’s projects engage with communities affected by industry or development. These are often marginalised communities living in “forgotten areas” where high levels of poverty, health and social issues make them an easy target for exploitation.
Growing up in the late stages of apartheid South Africa and the transition to democracy conscientised Sally to the extreme levels of inequality and injustice, and the ability of photography to amplify the voices of those who sometimes do not get a platform.
In her work, she focuses on individuals and communities sharing their stories of what seems to be an almost insurmountable struggle. Communities and individuals confronting big business year in and year out, against all odds, and in some cases risking their very freedom.
