This image of the 2021 lunar eclipse (blood moon) is from the series Stand Here. The series explores the global human experience of pandemic - from the vantage point of suburban Ngunnawal country (Canberra).
Sari Sutton is a photo media artist living and working in Ngunnawal country (Canberra). Her practice demonstrates a deep curiosity about human progress, transcience, renewal and transformation. Much of her work is documentary – in urban and more remote environments – but she also likes to play with constructed concepts and ideas. She has a particular passion for landscape and what it can reveal of human behaviours, rituals and priorities; how we shape our environment – and how it shapes us. Through perceptive, astute observation, her work demonstrates insight into the state of the world, power, agency, choice and consequence – and the forces that shape our experience of being human.
Sari is a member of the Unexposed Collective of Australian women and non-binary street photographers. Since she reinvigorated her practice around 2017, her work has been exhibited in Australia and internationally. In 2020, she was selected to participate in the 2020 Australian National University School of Art and Design Bundian Way Arts Exchange, and her work was included in the 2020 Loud and Luminous volume ‘Equality’, featuring the work of 100 Australian women photographers. In 2021, her work was recognised in the Head On Photo Awards, Australian Photography Awards, Australian Life awards, the Paris Photography Prize (PX3) and the British Journal of Photography/ 1854 Media Edition365.
