In the back-streets of Kumartuli Artisan Quarter in Calcutta India, skilled potters craft beautiful straw & hand-painted clay goddess idols for cultural Indian Festivals such as Durga Puja and Kali Puja. These potters are highly regarded not only in Calcutta, but their goddess creations are coveted all over India.

Her interest in disappearing cultures takes her to some of the more remote parts of the world. Sarah's images have been awarded international photography awards. Sarah is also the director of SignaturePhoto Photography Courses.
