Bio

Sandra is an award-winning fine art photographer who creates calming visual meditations.

She spent nearly 20 years working alongside some of the best cinematographers in the world as a production manager in the film industry.

In 2012, Sandra led photography workshops for disadvantaged teenagers in Essaouira, Morocco. The project culminated in a very successful exhibition of their work and an interview with the teenagers on Moroccan television.

Two years later found Sandra on the archipelago of Svalbard, half way between Norway and the North Pole, where she worked as the Expedition Photographer onboard Hurtigruten’s MS Fram.

Through a 2016 crowd-funding campaign, she created her first book “Adfectus: An Exploration of Life and How We Fit Into the World”. The project was funded within 36 hours and the resulting publication has received many positive reviews.

Her most recent solo exhibition “Hidden Beauty” was part of Photomonth East London International Photography Festival. This led to features in The Guardian and Professional Photography Magazine. She is currently working on her next book showcasing work from this series.

Sandra is represented by the renowned L A Noble Gallery in London and has work in private collections in the UK, the United States, Switzerland, Turkey and Australia.

Artist Statement

I capture images that create space to breathe, like visual meditations.  Immersing myself in the act of photography as a type of meditation allows me to slow down and appreciate this beautiful world that surrounds me.  I search for simplicity in remote places and beauty in abandonment, going beyond the depths of the surface to construct sensory escapes that silence the chaos of this hectic world.
Much of my work centres around the expansive and remote Arctic, but even when photographing in an urban environment, I still seek the moments of solitude.

Elevator Pitch

 
I am a visual artist. Using the medium of photography I create minimalist visual meditations that allow the viewer a sensory escape from our hectic world.
