Sarah’s prints have been concerned with mother and daughter- relationship. She uses images found in family albums that are transferred onto large steel plates, which have then been worked into aquatints. The photographic depiction plays a key role but it develops a painterly quality. The subject matter is in a sense the photographic moment, when a point in time is snatched from the flow and sealed into stillness and put in to a different relationship to the continuing life, giving the moment its mortal edge.
