Sarah Jones is among the leading contemporary artists who are making carefully staged, large-scale colour photographs. The proportions of her photographs accentuate the relationship between the almost life-size subject and the viewer.

This still and enigmatic scene contains gestures and objects that suggest psychological depth and meaning. A girl sits at a garden table staring out into her suburban setting. Jones has used strong lighting to illuminate the girl, creating a stark contrast between the sitter and her environment.
