Sarah Pickering researches truth versus verisimilitude through the medium of photography. Her unmanipulated images preserve actions whose causality and construction seems to be part of an alternate, but no lesser, reality. She worked with the emergency services, the military and pyrotechnic manufacturers to produce her most recent bodies of work.
