Sarah Amy Fishlock

Sarah Amy Fishlock works with lens-based media, found images and publications. Her work explores the relationship between the individual and wider social, historical and political realities, the tension between individual and familial identity, and the problematic nature of memory.

Middlemen, a portrait of three Iraqi former British Forces workers now resettled in Glasgow, was exhibited at the Scottish Parliament in 2011; other projects include Amye & Ahren, documenting a family living with autism, and a 9-month period as Artist in Residence at Glasgow’s Citizen’s Theatre in 2013/14.

Sarah is editor of the photography zine Goose Flesh and has produced zine publications documenting her projects - these are held in several collections including St. Andrew's University Special Collections and the Women's Art Library at Goldsmiths, London. Sarah was a finalist in the Magnum/ Ideastap Photographic Award 2014, and in 2016 was selected for a Magenta Foundation Flash Forward Award.

In 2016 she became a member of the photography collective Document Scotland. Sarah’s work has been exhibited internationally at the British Council Gallery (Delhi), Landskrona Foto Festival (Sweden), Focus Festival (Mumbai) and the Consul’Art (Marseille) among others, and featured by the Guardian, BBC News In Pictures, Hotshoe, Firecracker, Foto8 and Der Greif.
