Collaboration with Sarah Wilkinson Design Sarah Wilkinson for the second time asked me to collaborate with her, photographing her amazing paintings on material, in an interior space. I did enjoy doing it and with this collaboration, because I haven’t used my equipment, I learned a lesson; always use the equipment u used to because it can take double of the time to set up everything. I learned what’s feel like to be trusted in making work.
