Sandra Marill Chandler’s new body of work juggles abstraction and realism.  Her aerial interpretation of unexpected color patterns is based upon the salt evaporation basins of the San Francisco South Bay. It illustrates the brilliant hued pockets and tactile textures that are ever-changing.

Chandler grew up in San Francisco traveling frequently via the San Francisco International Airport. “I have always been captivated by the South Bay salt pond’s vibrant colors, captivating textural shapes and intriguing graphics as seen from airplane windows.  As I have grown as a photographer, I have become attracted to aerial landscape photography and have come to appreciate a fresh perspective of our earth.”

“I strive to make photographs balanced between abstraction and realism aspiring to create colorful explosive images with noteworthy details. These photographic moments prompt a sense of space, a moment of drama and new ways of perception – for us all.”
