Récemment diplômée du Journal de la Photographie Britannique et finaliste de Fractured Stories, Sadie Catt est née et a grandi à Brighton, en Angleterre. Elle photographie l'intimité et les relations humaines à travers une approche documentaire du quotidien. Inspirée par les thèmes de la maternité, de l'identité et la perspective féminine, Sadie crée un lien personnel entre le sujet et le spectateur au travers de l'usage du portrait en lumière naturelle, du paysage et du détail.
Woodstock, focuses on the inhabitants of a small city and its surrounding area in Ontario, Canada. For over a decade Sadie has immersed herself in North American culture through regular visits. Her response is that of an inside-outsider, formed through family connections and an evolving sense of the place. The work is inspired by themes of immigration, colonialism and history through the personal experience of family members; her own reactions to a partially realised promise of a new life. Woodstock is a creative response to the social dynamics and cultural identifiers of a place known locally as ‘The Friendly City’. Linked through maternal ties to the artist, the work is rooted in a personal exploration of her family’s traumatic past and its lasting effect.
