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 since her first solo show at Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York. She was selected for a Terra Foundation Fellowship (2021) and a forthcoming Munn Artist Fellowship (2022) with artist-in-residency at Monet House from the Versailles Foundation in France. Recently, Schorr's image ebbtide received the director's prize at the Griffin Museum of Photography which will result in an exhibition and catalogue. 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, Spain. 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. Her book “The Color of Water,” with words by Elizabeth Avedon and Anne Marie Kragh Pahuus accompanied a (2021) solo show of her work at Galleri Image in Aarhus, Denmark and a forthcoming (2022) solo show at the Northern Photographic Centre in Oulu, Finland. 

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”. Sarah currently lives in Denmark where she lives, works (and swims).
