Sarah D. King, Visual Edge graduate, will show two distinct bodies of photographic work. "Emergence" is an investigation into perspective and perception through the exploration of variables of material, chemical interaction and light refraction. It attempts to elucidate that which emerges from the spontaneous relationship between fortuity and precision. "Visum" considers spaces of the home as mediums for storytelling.
