Sarah is a documentary photographer from Melbourne, Australia who after graduating with a degree in International Studies from Deakin University in 2009, went on to study a BFA in Photography at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology majoring in Documentary and Editorial Photography.
As a recent graduate, Sarah is preparing to spend 2013 travelling whilst working on a number of long term photographic projects. With a firm grounding in street and documentary photography, Sarah has spent a great deal of time in the last few years travelling throughout Europe, East and South Asia, North America and Mexico while completing her studies.
In February 2012, Sarah had her first solo exhibition in Melbourne, exhibiting a collection of works from her time in the United States and Canada. In August and September 2012, Sarah spent a month travelling throughout the small yet beautifully diverse island nation of Sri Lanka, producing a collection of landscape, portrait and street images. In contrast, Sarah completed her degree in Photography with a year long folio evolving around Melbourne’s suburban landscape; this body of work is titled ‘Sprawl’.
