“Having trained both as a theatre director and a dance choreographer, Sarah has always relied upon the strength of ‘composition’ to express an idea. It was no surprise that this would culminate in working in the field of photography”

“Initially my inspiration for ‘Dispersion’ was aesthetic, as Mallards can represent grace, peacefulness and sensitivity. My aim was to capture the beauty in the form and colours of wings themselves and the spiritual freedom that they represent when in flight. The interest for me lay in the juxtaposition between the struggling frenzy of the ducks’ strong legs and feet beneath the surface, propelling the impression of a calm exterior gliding through the water. Immediately I drew a parallel between dance and flight.”
