Sara S Webb is an accidental photographer in some ways. She took black and white film classes back in 2010 and these days sticks to working with her iPhone 4s and an app such as picfx, VSCO Cam, faded, or afterlight. Though sometimes she relies on her Nikon D3200. We found her through her EyeEm profile where we discovered lots of truly amazing black and white work.
She states that she has always been creative. “I was in Art club in high school and took it very serious. I wanted to go to art school but didn’t have the budget so my mother mentioned beauty school.” says Sara. “I decided on becoming a hairstylist at 19. I felt it was a great creative outlet for me. I also loved the fact that I was able to pay my own way working weekends.”
Ms. Webb is constantly search the web for ideas but states that she mostly gets bored, grabs her tripod and camera and uses herself as inspiration. Indeed, the woman that you often see in the photos is her. But her images have a dark and hypnotic beauty to them that looks like something straight out of the dark room.
