Behind the veil
Sandra Felt UNITED STATES
Sandra Felt discovered photography a few years ago after her children left the nest. She loved taking pictures of her family, as most moms do, but had never considered it as an artistic medium. Then, a hip injury grounded her for a few months and she began to read and fall in love with photography. It was an awakening to see her thoughts and feelings reflected in her images; her subconscious had found a voice.
Sandra is originally from Costa Rica but was raised in New York City. Through photography she re-connected to a childhood environment that she had long thought forgotten. Her deep respect and love of nature comes from her uninhibited early experiences of hopping through fields, climbing trees, catching frogs, laughing at monkeys - the jungle as her playground. Nature nourished her soul as a child and then again after loosing her husband to 9/11. Her love of nature led to the exploration of photography as a means to document her perception of what she experiences in the world around her. In her abstract work she tries to convey the joy and fun that she derives from using her camera as a paint brush by actually moving the camera as one would a paint brush.
I use intentional camera movement, double exposure and photoshop to create my images.
