As an emerging fine art photographer and writer, Sarah Treanor is interested in the concepts of life and death. Her most recent series, entitled “Still, Life”, provides a unique glimpse into the private yet universal experience of grief. Widowed at 29, she chronicled her journey through loss with self-portraits and accompanying essays. The result is a deeply emotional and psychological exploration of what it means to grieve.
On Photography… “Over the years, photography has become one of my preferred methods for telling stories of the human experience. I enjoy the challenge of balancing the technical and creative aspects that are part of the medium. Whether sketching ideas, shooting in the field, or processing images, I find the entire process rewarding. Each part of the process keeps me fully engaged and excited about the story I am telling with that particular image. Photography also serves as a healing tool for me, enabling me to cope more positively with many of life’s challenges.”
