Sarah Sudhoff is a fine art and editorial photographer working in San Antonio, Texas. Following surgery for cervical cancer in 2004, Sudhoff began investigating the effects of the illness on herself and others for a project she titled “Repository”, a series of photographs and videos that presents an unflinching account of the artist and her illness. Sudhoff will be discussing and showing images from this work, as well as her current project, “At the Hour of Our Death”.
Sudhoff’s photographs and video projects have been exhibited internationally and nationally, and her images have been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Fortune, Men's Health, Neon and Time.com. Sudhoff holds an MFA in photography from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City, as well as a Bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Austin. She is currently on the faculty at the University of Texas at San Antonio. To see examples of her work, visit her website.
