Sarah TreanorSeguin TX USA
I'm a fine art photographer and writer living just outside Austin, TX. Having lost both of my parents and my husband-to-be all before the age of thirty, death has been a prominent part of my life from a very young age. Creating has always been a significant part of my coping and healing process. Through metaphors and minimalist compositions - I create visual stories that explore various aspects of grief and death. Though deeply personal, my work speaks to the common experiences, emotions and questions we all have around death. The pieces entered are from a year-long series I am currently working on entitled "Still, Life". Each week, I create a self portrait and accompanying written piece exploring aspects of my own personal journey of living on after the death of my fiance in 2012.
