bio

Sarah Lynch lives and works in Narrm (Melbourne). In 2004 Sarah completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Victorian College of the Arts.

Presently Sarah employs photography to express a relationship with her surrounding environments. After extensive travel throughout Australia and internationally Sarah’s practice has been informed by her interactions with the concept of place and hegemonic acts of representation. Sarah uses both analogue and digital photographic processes as a medium to provide an artistic and historical documentation of what might seem to be viewed but is fundamentally overlooked.
