Grounded in the adage that seeing is believing, Sarah Walker’s debut book assumes a cynical appraisal of our collective relationship with spirituality, faith, ritual, and the search for meaning. Utilising the trickery of photography in relation to simple phenomena such as light, forms, and movement, Walker reframes and appropriates fragments of the everyday to imbue them with the loaded atmosphere of the ephemeral and the arcane. The project interprets the supernatural in a contemporary space, looking into our ability to have faith in something that is intangible and beyond our comprehension. The images unveil the many elements that help us fathom the world beyond what we see.
