About Sarah Morton Photography

I studied Art History at the University of St Andrews and the Art of Black and White Photography at Glasgow School of Art. I have been selected for exhibition with the Royal Photographic Society, the Chania International Photography Festival, the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens and have recently become a Juried Affiliate Artist with the prestigious Circle-Arts Foundation in France. I won two awards for my photography from the annual Monochrome Awards, and I picked up several accolades for her wedding photography. I am also a member of Art Map Argyll, the BJP 1854 community and the RPS. My work has been exhibited in Britain and Europe and is in private collections from the USA to Australia. My photographs have been published in ArtMag, Spotlight and Contemporary Artist magazines and in 2020 I was selected as one of the first artists to feature in the new European art magazine Art IDEAL.

"As as student of Art History, I studied the work of the “gesture painters” and “colour field” artists and my photography is very much influenced by this period. At the Glasgow School of Art I studied the art of black and white photography. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of pushing inherently representational photography towards the abstract and turn the familiar into something unexpected. Since moving to digital I am discovering that the developing processes I like best are a continuation of the ones I learnt in the darkroom at the School of Art. As my photography evolves and improves I continue to learn from the greats, both photographers and artists, of the past."

All images will be printed to order on Hahnemule or Canson A2 fine art photo rag paper, with a white border, signature, print number and embossed with my studio logo. The measurements denote the paper size not the image size.
