Blanc & Noir MY LIFE : MY LENSÂ

MONIQUE SARTOR CULTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY


CULTURAL PHOTOGRAPHER "Beautiful photography has the ability to draw us into a story; even if we know little about what that might actually be.  Moody black and white shots, blur and grain add to the mystery, allowing our imaginations to fill in the blanks".   Monique Sartor has been a keen amateur photographer for almost twenty years.  She focuses on the stories behind the image.  She also believes in allowing for happy accidents such as blur, shards of light and grain which some might consider a fault but Monique sees them as adding to the mystery! From famous landmarks to traditional costumes, Monique focuses on detail and atmosphere and a healthy dose of humour.

2018 MY LIFE : MY LENS FINE ART 1/30 LIMITED  EDITION PRINTS

AVAILABLE THROUGH CURIOUS ART BAR WWW.CURIOUSARTBAR.COM


Venezia Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Venezia "This is quite simply one of the most charismatic cities in the world and I can’t get enough. I love its history, it’s canals, the gondoliers and architecture. The glass, the windy streets and the magnificent pasta dishes. I’ve read Casanova’s autobiography and it turned my cynicism around to being enchanted and rather impressed!


Botticelli Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Botticelli "A modern take on a Botticelli inspired look. An angelic face with a halo suggesting innocence and purity."


Regal Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Regal "This image is reminiscent of so many things. Medieval queens, Hail Marys, and da Vinci models. It harks back to the magic of Camelot in a way, while the fairy lights keep it grounded in today"


Eye Spy Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Eye Spy "This is my little man with the big brown eyes. I love the curiosity kids have about life. They see things through un jaded eyes and often stop to smell the roses – as adults we don’t do this enough. This little man has a philosophical heart and incredible insights into people’s motivations."


Galleon Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Galleon "I saw this above a shop in Venice. It’s absolutely adorable and so detailed. I couldn’t help but wonder how many people actually look up and see it!"


Dos Amigos Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Dos Amigos "I’m a country girl living in the city. I try to get ‘home’ every school holidays to see my dad and catch up with friends. Last visit was to a farm where these handsome creatures reside. How fluffy are their faces! Scrumptious!!!"


Mon Ami Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Mon Ami "this is my daughter, Bella. For International Day at school this year she wanted to go as a French inspired Mafiosa (complete with cap guns in the violin case). The moustache is apparently French in style! Personally, I think she absolutely ROCKS this look!"


Trianon Illuminate Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Trianon Illuminate "this window is in the servants’ section of Marie Antionette’s Petit Trianon. I seem to be drawn to tragic queens (also includes the last Tsarina of Russia, and all of Henry the 8th’s wives)! But Marie Antoinette’s life is particularly sad – she was a political pawn with little if any control over her destiny. The Petit Trianon was her escape and it is simply exquisite!"


Versaille Glow Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Versaille Glow "on my recent trip to Versailles I rediscovered my love of chandeliers! They’re everywhere and they’re bloody magnificent! This one stood on a plinth in front of a damask wallpaper in red. It wasn’t even a big one and yet, it is so very beautiful. They may have been extravagant and fiscally irresponsible, but man, they had awesome taste!"


Oh! Chandelier Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Oh! Chandelier "along with all the gorgeous chandeliers at Versailles were equally impressive mirrors! All framed in gilt. All gorgeous. The combination of chandelier and mirror is nearly enough to finish me off! Really, I could do with spending at least a year here! Ha! I wish!"


Essence Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Essence "I think the whole world must love the Eiffel Tower. Even now it is impressive, imagine how people must’ve reacted after it was first built. It’s steel work is like lace – intricate and beautiful!"


Spokes Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Spokes "I love circles and ovals. They’re such a relief from all the straight lines in our lives! So, you can imagine how much I love this window from the Petit Trianon!"


Shadowplay Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Shadowplay "here the Eiffel Tower’s lacework of steel casts enormous shadows on the ground in wonderful shapes."


Venus Awaits Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Venus Awaits "this statue was at the Louvre. She really was like a goddess looking down at mere mortals below!"


Mr Monster Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Mr Monster "a small detail at in a wall at Versailles. It looks like he’s trying to be so fierce, but really, one just wants to pinch his cute little cheeks!"


Waina Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Waina "this image is really a celebration of the beautiful Maori culture. Waina was wearing her family's Korowai (feathered cape) and looking up at a magnificent Maori totem. Hard to believe it's in Blacktown not Wellington!"


Calling The Spirits Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Calling The Spirits "Waina felt so connected to the feel of the location I'd chosen that she felt compelled to call the spirits to her. I found this profoundly moving!"


Haunting 5 Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Haunting 5 "I danced with Hagar and she modeled for this series around ghosts. The movement in the shot gives the image a lovely other-worldliness. I think it also hints at a positive note of moving towards the light.!"


Ghost 6 Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Ghost 6 "as a kid, I both desperately wanted to see a ghost AND hoped I never would. At least not in my home! Now that I'm older and have experienced loss, I sometimes feel the spirits of loved ones nearby. It's very comforting and not scarey at all."


Dancer Reclining Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Dancer Reclining "there's that magic moment before a show when you're ready and you feel both excited and calm. Waiting for the audience to arrive and reveling in the culmination and achievement that comes with bucketloads of work and rehearsals!"


Dancer Strikes a Pose Monique Sartor

limited edition fine art GiclĂŠe 2018 | photography print


Dancer Strikes a Pose "there's often an awesome camaraderie and playfulness behind the scenes. It gives you better wings than Redbull!"
