Sarah Carp was born in Switzerland in 1981. She graduated form the Vevey Shool of Photography in 2003. She is currently based in Switzerland. She was awarded the first prize at the Situation-2 exhibition and her work has been shortlisted in several competitions, exhibions and festivals.
Her work starts from a private and contemplative study of her immediate surroundings. A daily documentation that leaves room for doubt and for a multitude of possible openings. Through series combining portraits, landscapes and architectural elements, she tries to express the expectation and hesitation before a changing inner and outer world. The images are made instinctively, a mingling at the crossroads of reportage and staged scenes. She loves to tell stories and to offer spaces of freedom.
