"SARA" offers a view on childhood, adolescence and the transition in-between. These images question the very nature of youth, going beyond documentary into a dreamlike universe. An ongoing exploration of the boundaries between daily-life documentation and staged portraits. The strong presence of the photographer's little sister represents some kind of autobiography; through Sara's daily life as a growing homeschooler, Julia finds a parallel with her own experience. Her aim is to seize these so-called mundane moments, as they become curiously captivating: creating an atmosphere of playful exploration, a feeling of freedom.
