Sarah Howe Lecturer, Photography

Sarah Howe

I predominately teach across L6 in Photography, working with students to develop their practice. I also co-facilitate the inter-institutional project A Particular Reality, a collective dedicated to creating non-hierarchical spaces for teaching and learning. 

I am an artist and studied Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster, followed by an MA at the Royal College of Art. 

Working across mediums of photography, writing, moving image and installation my work aims to create intimate personal encounters and collisions with storytelling from diverse social, economic, and political contexts. Through collaboration with other people, my research informed practice contributes to cross disciplinary enquires on mental health, identity, and contemporary portraiture. The work aims to make visible the inevitably close relationships and mutually implicating effects of each of us living within the ever-connected societies of today.

My work has been presented internationally in galleries, independent project spaces, and academic conferences. It has also featured in artist publications, magazines and online journals. My research relies on collaboration with others, which has led to projects with neighbours, friends, online and offline communities, students and other artists living across different yet mutually implicating social contexts. My practice adopts established research methodologies such as interviewing to collect original findings and then assesses these materials through artistic practice and creative technologies such as video editing.
