“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognise the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed”

Michelangelo


Artist Statement

Sandy Miles is a fine art photographer working in Suffolk. Returning to education as a mature student, she went on to be awarded a distinction grade for a Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design with UAL, before graduating with a first-class BA (Hons) in Photography from the University of Suffolk in 2021. 

Working predominantly with analogue photographic mediums, Sandy uses her camera, and different film emulsions, as tools with which to paint with. Her aim is to encourage the viewer to not only look, but to also engage with her work; it is this fascinating relationship between the photographer, the photographed and the spectator that ultimately informs her practice.
