Entry Title: "A New Light"
Name: Sarah Murray , United States
Category and Expertise: Still Life, Student


Entry Description: Most people don’t stop in front of the produce section to gaze at the beauty and complex anatomy of a vegetable. But I believe it is true for those over looked, that when shed in a new light, extraordinary things are seen. In a small enclosed bathroom with a 30 second exposure and flash light, I shed light on the vegetables. No post production was used on the images after the exposure was complete.

About the Artist:

My Name is Sarah Murray. I am 21 years old and I grew up in the small town of Berlin Maryland. I didn't discover my true passion for photography until the end of high school and the beginning of college. But I will say that since I was little I have always looked at things from a much different perspective than others. Besides photography, traveling is my second passion. I am blessed to be able to do both things I love at the same time. So many people walk through life without taking the time to enjoy it. Just a few years ago I was one of them. I was going to school for something I thought would be good for my future finances. After taking a photography course in Greece over the summer, I came back with a new path. This time something inside me felt right. Although the road ahead was going to be long I decided to re route my college degree to photography. Three years later and I am almost done. Although I cant be guaranteed riches, I am certain I will be enjoying the only life I was given. And I am okay with that.
