Artist Portfolio: Sarah Mercer

Closeup photo of Sarah Mercer

"After a friend introduced me to the idea of taking up photography, I decided to attempt a “365-day challenge” to take a different self-portrait a day for a year. Using only my Nikon D50 camera, a desk lamp and a remote, I was forced to look at innovative ways to represent myself. The obsessive nature of the year-long challenge encouraged me to take up other works in series, such as the A to Z Challenge, which requires a photograph of an interpretation or representation of each letter of the alphabet." --Sarah Mercer, Photographer
