SALT, by photographer Sandra Chandler is a master class in the Japanese concept of “Mitate”; To See with New Eyes.  

Her photographic perspectives on the salt evaporation basins of San Francisco remind us that we should never be complacent about how we see the world around us.  Seeing with new eyes can uncover beauty where once we thought none existed.

Chandler’s book gets to the core of artistic exploration, it causes us to rethink, reapproach the known and the mundane in a way that excites and evokes.

Her skill at capturing color, line, texture, man, and nature, all come together in a way that compels the viewer not only to rethink this interesting landscape, but to rethink each of our environments through different lenses every day.
