Ingeborg Tyssen (1945-2002) was one of Australia’s leading photographers of the postwar generation. Tyssen’s early photographs, taken in the streets and suburbs of 1970s Australia and America, depict urban isolation mixed with a gentle hint of surrealism. She progressed from detached observation to large-scale montages that revealed her darker side. The artist was respected for her rare ability of being able to acutely observe people in their own environment, without ever imposing herself on her subjects. "I react without too much thought," she said, "the important aspects are composition, texture and light."
