Born in Washington, D.C. in 1954, Sage Sohier is a 1976 graduate of Harvard College. She has taught at a number of schools in the Boston area, most recently for 12 years at Harvard University and also at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Featured in both the PRC's 1982 “New Works” portfolio and the new PRC portfolio, Sohier has lectured frequently at the PRC and was shown in the 2005/2006 exhibition, Group Portrait. Her series “Perfectible Worlds,” published recently by Photolucida (2007), is about “people's private passions and obsessions,” as she notes in the introduction, portraying them “transported into worlds and activities over which they have near-total control.” Sohier has been awarded many grants for her work, including Guggenheim and NEA Fellowships. She is in numerous prestigious public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, and her work on assignment has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Wired, Discover, " O," and other magazines. Sohier has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions, most recently at the Houston Center for Photography and the Foley Gallery in New York, where she is represented. She lives in Brookline, MA. www.sagesohier.com
