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.
