"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
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".
