Sarah Janes was awarded the Photoworks Prize at last year's London College of Communication Photography Degree Show for her project This Side and Beyond
This Side and Beyond is a series by Sarah Janes exploring the idea of landscape in the context of the urban environment, particularly the extent to which the photograph exists as a signifier, and as such is subject to a high degree of construction and control.
Sarah Janes’ use of peripheral sites questions the accepted or received notion of what constitutes a ‘serious’ photograph, by determining that each image is only complete once a person or element has unknowingly drifted into view. Chance features significantly in the process, each unwitting collaborator disrupting the frame at the same time as activating it.
