In describing her art, Sara Hertel says, "My work is a reaction to beauty; The less obvious the beauty, the greater my captivation. It's my aim to sneak up on the world-- to quietly capture what is real and true."

It is with this appreciation for authenticity that Sara archives the intrinsic elements of her subjects and events. Her work seeks to evoke emotion by capturing the subtleties of her surroundings organically.

Sara is a native of Portland, Oregon. Her work has been exhibited in multi-format installations and published internationally. She concentrates in music industry publicity, freestyle portraiture, and gritty street photography.
