Sarah Hadley is a Los Angeles based artist, whose mysterious and alluring cinematic photo collages are borne out of her love of European black and white film of the 60’s.
Her work is a homage to the surrealists, who first employed the technique of combining unrelated images to create startling and insightful connections. Hadley uses photographic elements from different images to create narratives centered on female identity and memory. By intentionally constructing her photographs both in and out of the camera, she creates powerful stories to address the intimate joys, sorrows, dreams and desires of being a woman.
Hadley’s project Story Lines is currently on exhibition at the dnj Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. Her work has been exhibited internationally at Fotofever in Paris, the Porto Photo Festival in Portugal, the Worldwide Photography Biennial in Buenos Aires, the Ballarat Festival in Australia, the Lishui Photo Festival in China, as well as at PhotoLA, the Afterimage Gallery (Dallas), the Florida Museum of Photography (Tampa), the Griffin Museum of Photography (Boston), the Robin Rice Gallery (NYC), Fabrik Projects Gallery (LA) and Building Bridges Art Exchange (LA). Her first monograph
Lost Venice was published in 2020 by Damiani Editore.
