Sasha Vella (2000) is a Maltese multimedia artist currently working mostly with analog photography. In 2021, she graduated with a BFA (Honours) from the Digital Arts Department of the University of Malta. Sasha is interested in projects that largely investigate the human impact on the environment, as well as playing with the interconnectivity between nature and humans.
She seeks out changing landscapes, indirectly prioritising the desolate, and generally builds her visual narrative by shooting with expired 35mm film, inviting an element of chance and an act of surrender in her process of image-making. Her work is often inspired by the female form, and documenting the beauty in decay and the derelict, both in terms of subject and medium. Sasha has been working as a professional journalist for the past two years. Her work focuses on local stories that concern socio-political, and environmental notions.
