About Get Paused

My name is Sarah Prescott, I am an artist, a photographer and a survivor. Get Paused is my survival story told in photographs and words about how a brain tumor and stroke changed my life. Each series shows how my art changed my life and my illnesses changed my art. I invite the viewer to come on my journey that emphasizes the innate way I interpret ordinary or damaged objects and see their beauty.

Being sick forced me to slow down and pause. Pausing allowed my perceptions to change. If I didn't get paused, I would have walked past these images and not photographed them. My illnesses have been a blessing in disguise.
