5 x 5 Submission 71 - Rosie Sabaric

Rosie Sabaric
Biography /artist statement

Born and raised in Seattle, WA, Rosie has long had an interest in exploring the world through a camera lens. She can recall this process beginning at the age of 5 where her camera collection doubled that of her age and she had a growing collection of images of her stuffed animals. Although the images of stuffed animals were long left behind, the passion of image capturing remained with Rosie through high school. Eventually, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography from Western Washington University.

My current body of work entitled, Construct of Space, deals with the fascination of architectural spaces and what sorts of questions arise when contemplating these spaces. For me, looking up at buildings or within particular spaces presents a brief period of contemplation. I find that by intentionally blurring these images using a camera that offers lo-fi image quality enhances these momentary impressions.

Buildings and spaces can have a profound effect on the psyche. Sometimes there is no effect. What I try to capture is my own experience in often overlooked or forgotten buildings.
