Sarah Palmer was born in San Francisco and has lived in New York for twelve years. She is an artist primarily working in photography. Her recent work examines dark corners of remembrance, identity, and invention. Exploring the artist’s futile attempt to study time by stopping it mid-decay, the work looks at the medium of photography and her desire through a prism, breaking each apart into their elements. This work traces a search for the possible and impossible within photography, the desire to understand how ideas and memories are trapped inside, like fossils in rock. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, recently at the Foam_Fotografiemuseum in Amsterdam and the 2011 New York Photo Festival. She is a member of the full time photography faculty at Parsons, The New School for Design.
