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. Sarah is currently a Master of Photography Candidate at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

Presently Sarah employs photography to express her relationship with her surrounding environments. After extensive travel throughout Australia and internationally, Sarah’s practice has been informed by her interactions with spatiality, movement and the concept of place. Using both analogue and digital photographic processes, Sarah’s recent work has been driven by a desire to record the nuanced, ever changing and almost imperceptible flourishes in the landscape.
