Sarah Rose Smiley
I first became interested in Sarah Rose Smiley‘s work because she is from my hometown Madison, Wisconsin, and I continued to be intrigued by the quality images she is producing at the age of nineteen. I find her work to be young and full of life with the ways that she is experimenting with various styles and techniques in photography.
I’m Sarah Rose Smiley, currently 19 years young but with a heart much older. I’m a student by day and artist by night, learning to balance the two. Photography has quickly evolved from an outlet to a lifestyle; I picked up my camera five years ago and haven’t put it down since. I’ve found that the release of the shutter allows for a release of much else. What photography has given me, I could never begin to repay.Throughout my five years in the industry I’ve stumbled upon many lucky opportunities. I shot my first international campaign at the age of 16, my photos have been selected for book covers, and my editorials have been published internationally. I currently work as a freelancer in my area, collaborating with local magazines, publications, and agencies.
I strive for a kind of collective consciousness behind my work. My photos are very much a representation of who I am, both in that specific moment of the picture, and as a whole: I like to think that if any story is being told, it’s my own.
