"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself.

PREVIEW: Collier Schorr in Season 2 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (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 "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
