Art:21 - Collier Schorr

art:21

2003

Collier Schorr's photographs examine the way nationality, gender and sexuality influence an individual's identity. Known for her portraits of adolescents, Schorr's pictures often blend photographic realism with elements of fiction. Schorr trains her camera on tribes of young men whose bodies and athletic training homogenize personal differences, including soldiers and wrestlers.

Collier Schorr is featured in the Season 2 episode “Loss & Desire” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
