Born in 1963, Collier Schorr grew up in Queens, New York and studied at the School of Visual Arts. Schorr’s photographs examine the way nationality, gender and sexuality influence an individual’s identity. Known for her portraits of adolescents, Schorr’s pictures often blend photographic realism with elements of fiction. 

8 Women is Schorr’s third photo book, following Jens F. and Blumen and it spans her work from the mid-nineties and includes her appropriated adverts from fashion magazines. Described as “a new 8-track photograph”, this series of photos features a variety of subjects, all of whom are involved in performance, be it as artists, models or musicians.

Since you’re here …

Like many other media organisations, KitschMix is operating in an incredibly challenging financial climate. More people are reading the KitschMix than ever, but our advertising revenues are falling fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. KitschMix is an independent website that takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce, but we do it because we believe women in the LGBTQ community need more positive visibility.

If everyone who reads our articles, who likes them, helps to support them, our future would be much more secure.
