Sarah Crawley – 2019 Riding Mountain Artists’ Residency

Sarah Crawley is an artist in residence at the Deep Bay Cabin for the 2019 Riding Mountain Artists Residency.

Sarah is a photo-based artist who uses various photographic technologies and materials to investigate the impact that memory, place and loss have on identity. Her work has been exhibited across Canada.

During her residency in Riding Mountain National Park, Sarah will be using video as well as different types of photographic processes to experiment with, in, and around the water. Methods of capture and process will include analog film photography as well as alternative methods such as cyanotype, lumin printing, and others.

“I am interested specifically in working at Clear Lake because of its clarity and cold temperature. The extreme clarity of Clear Lake will make underwater video footage possible.  I am also interested in the endurance required to swim for any length of time due to the temperature of Clear Lake. With the cabin’s close proximity to the water I will be spending long days at the Deep Bay Beach shooting video of the water and making photographic images with the sun.”

Artist Presentation

Join Sarah on Saturday, August 24th, for a Slow Photography workshop. Participants will be guided through making their own pinhole camera and given instructions on where to place their camera to create a long-exposure Solargraph.
