Sarah Graves is the creator of Graves Studios. Her love of making images began at an early age. Growing up in the Hudson Valley of upstate New York, she was surrounded by beautiful farm land and many historic buildings, often in various stages of decay. This is where she began to make her first images. Even today, she see images as a way of preserving the present.

Sarah lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She values analog methods of art making and hand prints each of her images on silver gelatin, fiber based papers. Sarah uses medium and large format film cameras to create her work.
