“It is an illusion that photographs are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.”
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, different film emulsions, and alternative darkroom techniques, as tools with which to paint. 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.
