Witness to Beauty

Sage Sohier

"Witness to Beauty" Sage Sohier, 2017

$55 USD (Signed)


The photographs Sohier made of and with her mother...acknowledge the toll of time, shifting generational values, glitches in family dynamics, and the insecurities and confrontations that beauty can trigger....Given the two women’s artfulness and willingness to experiment, the photographs are exquisitely controlled, yet sometimes uncomfortably revealing, and delightful, although every once in a while some get uncomfortably raw.  Morgan, in a sustained performance extending over dozens of years and images, reveals herself as a force to be reckoned with. Sohier, in photographs different from those she has made before, proves herself to be as shrewd and accomplished an instigator of images as she is the recorder of them."
