Sarah Silver studied both classical and modern dance from an equally young age, so has always had an appreciation of movement. After completing her first degree in Middle East studies from Vassar College, she found that her true calling was to combine both of her passions: photography and movement. She applied for graduate studies in photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Sarah was chosen to shoot for Surface Magazine’s Avant Guardian issue and this fashion shoot marked the true beginning of Sarah’s professional career as a photographer. Using dancers as models in high fashion, Sarah’s style gelled. Next, Sarah shot her graduate thesis, two fashion stories, using the modern dance group Stephen Petronio Dance in clothing by Prada and Imitation of Christ. These photographs have since appeared in several magazines including PDN, Italian Vogue, Elle and Time Out NY and the New York Times. She is shooting with a medium format digital back.
