Sarah Kaufman, HC 2003, received her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2008. She is teaching part time at Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA. Sarah’s work since her senior year at Haverford concerns the human body and its placement in space. She is able to find commonality of form in both. Yet, her emphasis is on the individuality and humaneness of her subjects. Her most recent work in color is of male and female nudes photographed in their home environments at ease before or after work. The subjects in these photographs are not idealized. However, the full tonal range of light as it is recorded in each of the subjects living environments in either black and white or color suggests otherwise. These contemporary urban environments are as varied and interesting as are Kaufman’s subjects.

She actively exhibits her work on the East Coast since receiving her MFA. Peter Barberie, The Brodsky Curator of Photographs, Alfred Stieglitz Center, Philadelphia Museum of Art, selected one of her pictures for a major prize at the Project Basho Competition in Philadelphia in 2008. Her most recent work was exhibited at the SOHO Photo Gallery in New York City from June to July of this year.
