Sarah Hood Salomon
Sarah Hood Salomon is a fine art photographer whose work explores the emotional aspects of the world around her. She utilizes camera motion and slow shutter speeds to compress transitional qualities of time into one image. By moving the camera while the shutter is open, she allows light to be formed into specific ‘brush strokes.’ Familiar objects are abstracted to textures, shapes, lines and colors. The subject no longer exists within a single instant, but moves through a confluence of several moments. Characteristics are obscured so a viewer might recognize themselves in a similar reverie.
Sarah’s award-winning photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the U.S. Limited edition prints are individually made using archival materials. She is a photography judge, curator, and author. She holds a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College and is a candidate for an MFA in photography at Maine Media College.
