Biography

Sally Gall has spent her career exploring the intricacies of the natural world in delicate black-and-white photos of dew on spider webs, reflections on water, formal gardens, insects, caverns, and the subterranean world. Using a square-format Diana or Hasselblad camera, she creates abstractions of familiar subjects, showing nature at once as immense and intimate, nurturing and overwhelming, often shooting at dawn, dusk and other transitional moments. Recently Gall has begun working in color while continuing to use nature as her muse, as in “Crawl”, a series where she focused on the lush ecosystem that lives in the landscapes just inches from the ground.
