Sarah Morton Photography

“Based in Kintyre, Scotland, surrounded on three sides by water my work is very influenced by the sea and the notorious Scottish weather. I am constantly amazed and challenged by the changing light and atmospherics, the unpredictable weather and the awesome light quality.”

Scottish photographer, Sarah Morton studied Art History at the University of St. Andrews and completed The Art of Black and White Photography at the Glasgow Art School (Adult Education). She has worked as a professional photographer since leaving the BBC in 2003. 

"As an Art History student I studied the work of the gestural painters and Color field artists and my photography is very much influenced by this period. At the Glasgow School of Art I studied the art of black and white photography. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of pushing inherently representational photography towards the abstract and turn the familiar into something unexpected. Since moving to digital I am discovering that the developing processes I like best are a continuation of the ones I learnt in the darkroom at the School of Art. As my photography evolves and improves I continue to learn from the greats, both photographers and artists, of the past.”
