SARAH SMITH – THE SHOT I NEVER FORGOT

I came across Sarah’s work during the ‘Cream 13: A Showcase of Graduate Photography Talent’ exhibition (put on by Crane Kalman Galleries), which found its way to Brighton Dome earlier this year. Some images from the series ‘As The Crow Flies’ featured in the show and immediately caught my eye due to their almost macarbe atmosphere and for me, were a real highlight of the work being featured.

(I am also a bit obsessed by Corvus’, which Sarah uses to fabulous effect!).

So I got in touch with Sarah and I am delighted to share her image with you.

SARAH SMITH ‘RAVEN’ 2013 (THE SHOT I NEVER FORGOT)

I’d like to include the attached Raven. It’s probably not the best shot, but the shoot itself was a real privilege to do. To spend time and be in such close proximity to such a beautiful intelligent bird was an experience I’ll never forget. I spent about an hour in a darkened studio with this beautiful Raven who hopped about at lightening speed, onto my shoulder, on top of my lights, staying still for mere mili-seconds.

The Shot I Never Forgot  is an on-going series of posts where I invite Photographers to share an image that has always remained with them, despite being unused.

The premise is that most photographers shoot many more images than ever see the light of day and often take some fabulous standalone images on instinct whilst making a particular body of work or project.  Because these single images do not fit the theme, they sit gathering dust in the archive.

However, there are usually a few of these images which stay in our minds as they have special significance or are too good to be lying dormant.

The Shot I Never Forgot is an invitation to share these images with the world and let them stand alone in their own right for others to enjoy.
