Update 2014: I am now selling limited edition prints of my latest photo serie " Photo Art Portraits" on Etsy!

"Photo Art Portraits" is a series I made of ‘recycled’ portraits. Photos that I had disgarded because they had failed their original purpose. I felt challenged to re-use these photos in a new work of art. Inspired by shapes of the body, I made collages by layering different photos on top of each other. All art works of this series were exhibited in a solo exhibition in Amsterdam in 2014.

About Sara Meijer:

Age: 31 years

Hometown: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Education: BA of Arts Theatre and Dance Dramaturgy. Several uni courses in digital and portrait photography.

Inspiration: I get my inspiration by the small things in life. Life is full of movement and tension. Sometimes different elements unexpectedly come together and create a special image or atmosphere. Life is never still, but photography is and therefore can capture these unique moments that can create powerful images.

In my photography, as well as in my theatre and dance work, I look for emotion and expression and movement versus stillness. I find this in landscapes and cityscapes, but also in people and animals. In my theatre and dance work I like to create new images but in my photography I try to capture things just as they are as I see them around me. Most photographs I make are therefore not or very little edited and I use natural light.

Favorite travel:
I traveled to Sydney a few years ago where I studied Australian and Aboriginal Studies/Theatre at the University. Living somewhere gives you the chance to really get to know a culture which was a great experience.

Latest Work:
I love traveling because it makes you look at the world with a different eye. After traveling around the world for a few years I am now back in Amsterdam where I also like to 'travel' in my hometown. I trained my self to look at the places where I have been a million times as I have never been there before. Fortunately I live in Amsterdam where there seems to be an endless amount of things to see that you haven't seen or noticed before. This resulted in a photo series called 'Amsterdam in Hipstamatics'. I made this into a notebook that you can find under the 'book' section in my shop.
For any photographers or anybody else in need for inspiration, I can highly recommend pretending to be a tourist for a day in your own town and look at your own city with the eyes of a foreigner. It is great fun too.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D and Iphone4
