Here is what Sager had to say about his work:
My photographic explorations mirror the disjointed, fragmented and conflicted nature of my personal experiences and use visual metaphors that layer textures, reflecting internal chaos and emotional turbulence.
I am inspired to explore the emotional complexity that influences visual imagery, which our brains simplify as we perceive, absorb and comprehend information. Normally our eyes see all of the visual information but our brains simplify to one or two major objects. In taking these pictures based in the real world, the camera lets us see the rich visual complexity and multiple layers that we do not conventionally perceive.
This multilayered approach is influenced by growing up in New York City where I was enthralled by shop windows, reflecting the constant activity and often chaotic moments of the city, mirroring a fleeting and mesmerizing world. To illustrate this perspective the photographs featured in this exhibition are created “in camera” as single images without multiple exposures or adding content during post-processing.
