In the words of Australian photographer Sarah Lynch, “Photography is part of who I am: it’s a calling, something I feel compelled to do.” This passion for creating images of the land and those people who inhabit it is conveyed in the stunning photographs of this visionary artist. Indeed, each of Lynch’s pieces reflects a masterful sense of composition, where the natural landmarks are imbued with organic expressionist elements that lend a mystical, almost otherworldly quality to the landscape, transforming it into something entirely new and yet to be discovered.
Perhaps Lynch’s biggest inspiration is her love of landscape and the Earth. Her photography is meant to be a portal for the viewer, a way to connect with the majestic terrains that surround us and allow us to forge a deep affinity with the planet. Rather than seeking to record and unveil the long history of conflict between humans and the Earth, Lynch seeks instead to tell a story of cooperation, where one cannot exist without the other.
Sarah Lynch currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
