Sandy Edwards (b. 1948) is a key figure in Australian photography, known widely for a deeply personal approach to documentary image making that focuses on the portrayal of women and Aboriginal communities. Her sensitive and evocative photographs are taken with an intuitive response to feelings, people and place. By considering the intersection of human lives she broadens the genre of portraiture to explore inter-relational themes such as trust, love and community.
Edwards’ work was included in the original iteration of In Her Words at Horsham Regional Gallery.
