“I think Sandra’s work lends itself well to being shot in a sculptural way, since it is very sculptural to start with,” explained Ola Bergengren, who specializes in still life photography and took the detailed shots displayed in this exhibition. “Sandra’s designs are very sophisticated and complex but they are also very organic and almost low-tech in the way she crafts them by hand. My work is also very low-tech and I’m very much into analog processes, not too glossy and retouched or technical with fancy lighting.”
