MIXED MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHER
Rodrigo Sarrat-Cave began his photographic career in the darkroom of the Photographic Society at the University of British Columbia. The analog chemical process provided ample opportunities for experimentation, as well as cementing the foundations of photography. The shift from analog to digital image-making inspired Rodrigo to begin exploring the idea of fragmenting the real world with the camera and reconstructing it with digital tools.
In his latest work Rodrigo blends multiple images of a scene to create urban deconstructions that shift reality into ambiguous incomplete puzzles. The imaging process requires precision in one hand and serendipity in the other.
Exploiting the limitations of photo editing software has allowed Rodrigo to find new tools to manifest his vision.
Rodrigo recently retired from commercial photography to pursue personal projects. His work has been exhibited in galleries and public venues in British Columbia and is part of both private and corporate collections.
