A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in photography, Sarah Sorg received her MA with teacher’s certificate in art and education from Columbia University in 2001. Currently, she is a resident of Bangor, ME and teaches high school art and photography at the Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield, ME. Her work has been featured at the Bangor Public Library as well as many venues in Massachusetts, including the Cambridge Art Association (Cambridge, MA), Essex Art Center (Essex, MA), and the Fitchburg Art Museum (Fitchburg, MA).
Featured online are images from Sorg’s new series of night photographs. Her beautifully printed black and white prints perfectly complement the subtle tones of the night sky. Sorg draws upon her imagination and interest in astronomy in her stunning images of local towns, neighbor’s houses, and fields. As if by magic, we feel transported, not unlike Peter Pan, out of our windowsills and into the night. Planets and stars, appearing as rods and shafts of light speed across the sky. The power of the “music of the spheres” contrasts with the soft hum of the household incandescent bulb. Sorg’s images are quiet, still meditations on the seeming perfection of the world above, combined with the humble, fleeting nature of the domestic realm below.
