Sara Assebab
Lost
In her project, Lost, Sara Assebab explores the relationship between family life and identity. Starting from the position that identity, despite its apparent complexities, simply defines how an individual perceives the world from their own perspective, Assebab uses a combination of selective framing and cropping alongside constructed image-making to create narratives that suggest different moods and feelings.  The choice of black and white as a medium directs viewers toward the formal construction of the image while echoing the narrativity of the documentary tradition that is crucial to the reading of the work.
