During the 1970s, the crimes of Peter Sutcliffe, famously dubbed The Yorkshire Ripper, tore through Britain, terrifying women all over the country.

The downfalls of the investigation by the South Yorkshire Police were devastating, allowing Sutcliffe to murder a further seven women from the first time they questioned him. This series is a collation of evidence and imagery, used to present the facts and the stories behind the Yorkshire Ripper case and to honour the women forever remembered as “his victims”.

‘Redacted’ serves as a reminder that we, as a society have not progressed in terms of the perpetuation of rape culture, police incompetence and violence against women in the past 40 years.
