Sacha Ferrier works and lives in the North of England
The focus of my work is grief. In particular, I am interested in the human desire – perhaps, imperative - to search for some kind of relief or explanation, often beyond the seemingly rational or intelligible.
Working within film, digital and alternative methods of photography, my work aims to show how the unfathomable process of grief places its quarry within a desolate and abstruse state of mind, where normality becomes distant, and escape beyond reach.
