About the Artist

Sara Musashi was born in Northern Italy in 1985. She studied Visual Arts at NABA Academy in Milan, attended photography classes held by the artist Massimo Bersani, and eventually graduated with a degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Milan. In 2015, she moved to Los Angeles.

Sara started taking photos when she was in middle school, to document, with a disposable camera, the ancient, beautiful, and secret gardens of her foggy hometown. Ever since, she has always conceived the act of taking photographs as a private ritual, a process that yields to something beautiful and evocative, a way to get to see what normally hides from us, like walking through thick winter fog.

"What the common eye cannot perceive is what has always fascinated me. My approach to photography is very instinctive; I am not backed by a strong technical or theoretical education. Since I was little, I’ve always felt safe behind a camera; I could observe people without interaction and engagement, I could catch moments nobody would ever remember, fantasize with compositional lines and obtain a beautiful image out of a small segment of the reality I was in, even if that reality was not always picturesque.
I try to take images that remind us the way our imagination interacts with scenery we are familiar with or that we are observing for the first time. I recreate how our mind recalls emotions and impressions, how we remember places and people. We live in infinity, everything is transitional, time passes, Beauty fades, Nature transforms, and our feelings alter. Our imagination persists."

Musashi has participated in various group exhibitions, such as Silicon Valley Plastic Camera Show and LACP Fine Art Exhibitions. Her portfolios have been featured in esteemed photography e-zines. Sara also works with interior designers to bring a touch of her imaginative haze to private spaces and secret gardens.
