Sarah Pickering.

Interesting that a young photographer like Sarah Pickering who is more known for her colour work has chosen to shoot her latest series "Incident" in mono. Of course because of the subject it makes complete sense, what would be the point of using colour film to shoot a smoke blackened room? Black & White shows off the smudges that have been left by human activity so well. I love the fact that she has made this oh so unfashionable choice for the sake of her work. I may just add that the above image as scene online, in no way represents the quality of the photographs. I've not been lucky enough to see them in the flesh but even in the magazine Photoworks the quality of the prints is hinted at.
