The fact that my musical playlist usually has Leonard Cohen, Roy Ayers and Screeching Weasel all in one place must be the same reason that I can have Audrey Woulard, Lindsay Adler and Sarah M Photography on the same list of photographers that inspire me. Some days I need precious little children, other days I need artistic fashion and then there are the days, like today, where I just feel more alive and drawn to things that would creep my grandmother out.
Sarah M is dark, moody and passion driven. Her images have an old fashioned, film noir meets full moon, haunted mansion feel to them and I absolutely love them.
She puts herself out there and takes risks with her work. I’ve always been drawn to the people and things that may not be widely accepted at the “country club”, but even more than that, I’ve always been someone who has been able to show the people at the “country club” that sometimes being “different” is beautiful and worth giving positive attention to. Sarah’s work is the epitome of that.
Perhaps her blood and guts Dorothy isn’t for everyone….(though I would hang it in my living room!) but I don’t know a woman alive who wouldn’t want to feel like a vintage Hollywood star for a day.
