Sarah Mattozzi, born 1993, currently lives in Richmond, Virginia, where she is anticipating her BFA at the Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work deals largely with interpersonal relationships and romanticism, both centering on the concepts of family and escapism.
It Runs in the Family
Observing my family through the camera gave me a new form of communication, and a perspective on the subjects that still fascinate me today: coming of age, tension, rivalry, protectiveness, absence, and intimacy. Seeing how these qualities carried universally, I began finding these things in other sets of siblings. By acknowledging and working with the feelings that lie underneath the surface of the traditional family portrait, the complicated bonds between the kids that grow up alongside one another become uncovered.
