For Sara photography has become for her a way of expressing ideas and concepts through images; in her own words, 'it viewing your voice in an image. It is creating your world through the camera and thus express your ideas regarding a theme or feeling. It is our posture visually expressed. Can we change the world with our camera, or make it better? I hope so...'
