Sarah Hazel, Huntinburg, Indiana Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement Sarah Hazel has been a photojournalist and professional photographer for 20 years. Sarah Hazel a.k.a. "Schazel" is a prolific Polaroid user, whose fine art skills have been commissioned by an impressive range of corporate and publishing clients, has received several awards, teaches workshops at various venues, plus regularly exhibits her work. "Schazel" photographs hang in numerous private collections. "Photography for me is much like composing music, as if for the very first time, orchestrating a feeling into a theme through capturing expressions, the play of light, the time of exposure, development, the focus of lines, curves, colors, tones, shapes and textures. My art offers examples of the unusual, the minuscule, the beauty in details, and what I think most people may not see at a glance. Out of a world of endless montages, I attempt to isolate intricacies to create a visual song that can be heard and felt. My hope is for the viewer to be able to define his or her own song when observing my photographic art. I am also a Pine Needle basket weaver and Gourd artist and my work can be seen at my website on my profile page ~ Sarah Hazel" .... Thank you for stopping by!
