Sarah Osborn is a Brisbane based documentary photographer and photojournalist. Osborn’s many notable achievements include serving as the Artist in Residence at the Mater Children’s Hospital School, exhibiting work for previous Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and travelling to India as the Emotion21 photographer for the 2015 World Down syndrome Congress.
Osborn won the 2019 Camera Pro Explorer Grant and also runs her own business Frankly Photography & The Frankly Booth. Recently, she was recognised as one of the artists included in a national photography exhibition called Loud and Luminous, that highlights the works of 100 Australian female photographers. Loud and Luminous was launched in Canberra at a major arts symposium for International Women’s Day on March 6, which included some of Australia’s top photographic artists. A gallery exhibition will also be held in Sydney throughout April.
The exhibition celebrates and recognises the important contributions of contemporary female photographers in Australia and is designed to empower girls and women to pursue creative careers. The theme for the 2020 exhibition is ‘equality’ and Osborn’s artwork focuses on elder equality. Her image is from an upcoming body of work around the grief of losing her Grandmother. This is a tremendous honor for Sarah and a great exhibition to showcase some of the best female artists Australia has to offer.
