Showcase: Sarah Janes

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.
