Sarah Taft grew up in the Hudson Valley of upstate New York, where her love of history and making images began. The Hudson Valley has many historic buildings often in various stages of decay which inspired Sarah to pick up her mother’s Pentax camera at an early age. She sees images as a way of preserving the past and present, often making her sisters model for her amongst the decaying landscape. Sarah’s true love came when she was introduced to large format at Blue Moon Camera and Machine in Portland, Oregon, where she has worked for the last four years. You can often find her in her darkroom, printing for sanity or maybe its insanity; in any case there is usually sparkling wine involved. Sarah and her fiancé Joshua live with their fur babies, Emmet and Lola in North Portland.
