Sarah Newman was born in Miami, Florida, and began making black and white photographs at the age of seven. She has a BA in Philosophy from Washington University in St. Louis, and is currently completing her MFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Sarah’s photographic explorations run alongside her more general explorations of the world and its diverse environments. Her thesis, Through Place, explores human marks in the landscape and the various (visual, linguistic, and philosophical) parameters that underlie our notions of “nature.” Sarah recently began a new body of work photographing green energy technologies, such as wind and solar power, and considering how these innovations are integrated (or not) in our social and urban landscapes. She plans to continue this project in Malmö, Sweden in 2012-2013.
