Sarah Schorr is an American photographic artist, researcher, and educator. A captivation with light, water, and modes of embodied contemplation runs through her work.

Schorr’s work has been widely exhibited with solo shows at esteemed spaces such as Yancey Richardson Gallery and Scalo Project Space in New York City. Her photographic art has been selected for juried group exhibitions by notable curators such as Elizabeth Avedon and Paula Tognarelli. In 2020, Schorr’s work was honored by the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for women photographers in the category of nude (first prize) as part of an exhibition at the Fotonostrum Gallery in Barcelona. Schorr enjoys collaborating with other artists, writers, and researchers. Her artist catalogue, “Borrowed Glitter,” is accompanied by an essay from author and national book award finalist Phyllis Rose. Since earning her PhD, Schorr’s own research has been published in collected books and journals such as Cultural Anthropology. She recently received a grant from the Arts Council in Denmark to publish a catalogue of her current work, “The Color of Water,” with an essay by Danish Philosopher Anne Marie Kragh Pahuus to accompany a forthcoming (2021) solo show of her work at Galleri Image in Denmark.

Teaching and service galvanize Sarah Schorr's work. She led photography workshops focused on social change in conjunction with exhibitions in Nepal. She founded a public art education program, the Bereavement Project, in partnership with Hospice of Central PA and Hospice of the North Shore. In 2011, Schorr was awarded a three year fellowship from the Danish Council for Independent Research to expand her work with photography and hospice. Since this time, she has developed and taught courses on photography, social media, and making media at Aarhus University in Denmark. Schorr received her BA in English Literature from Wesleyan University, her MFA in Photography, Video, and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts and her PhD in media studies at Aarhus University with a dissertation entitled, “Social Photography: Photographic Practices in the Context of Social Media”. She was selected for a (forthcoming) Terra Foundation fellowship and residency in Giverny, France for 2021. Sarah currently lives in Denmark where she lives, works (and swims).
