Sarah Small + Elaine Stocki soft ground

The photographic works of Sarah Small and Elaine Stocki are treading on soft ground.

Unflinchingly personal and emotionally charged, their images counteract two different tendencies in today’s photographic art making, specifically emotional detachment and obvious digital manipulation.  The expressive imagery of Small and Stocki, two emerging artists, appears remarkable – both conceptually and aesthetically – in its intimacy, tension, and authentic emotion when considered in the context of other photographic art makers and current trends. – Curator Lisa Stinner
