Photographer Sarah Small lives and works in New York city. Her photography, with it’s enchanting people, animals, and candy colors, documents the human drama created when disparate visual elements and emotions collide. From her artist statement, “I examine human interactions with one another and with animals without reference to environmental cues or social markers like occupation, class and revealing context.” This examination has led to a body of work that is rich in such things as color and composition, but more importantly, examines the complexity of human emotions. In her spare time, Sarah maintains a daily diary of polaroid self portraits and sings in a Balkan A Cappella quartet, Black Sea Hotel.
Two years in the making, on May 23rd and 24th, 2011, Photographer Sarah Small and collaborators brought to life 120 models and musicians, at Skylight One Hanson. Chosen as one of Time Out New York’s Top Critic’s Picks, and listed in the New York Times, Flavorpill and more, the 120 model Tableau had the attention of many, long before the cast took the stage.
