Sille Petersen and Sarah Schorr, participants of the PAGE TURNER WORKSHOP with Paula roush.
In only a few days, the online module of our bookmaking workshop will start and we would like to take the opportunity to present two of the participants, Sille Juline Høgly Petersen and Sarah Gillingham Schorr.
Sille Juline Høgly Petersen is a Danish artist who uses analog and digital photography, and often includes experimental and historical processes. Her project for the Page Turner Workshop is called “Jagten på Competas Palmer” (”The Hunt for Competa’s Palm Trees”), which she has been working on for a couple of years and wants to present in a book format. This project is “a reflection over the fact, that many people are looking for and chasing happiness or a dream and often overlook it’s all right in front of them. Often, we are so busy that we do not even see the beauty of life in our surroundings. It could seem like we don’t care about what is right here and right now, but always looking for the palm trees at the neighbor’s garden”.
Sarah Schorr is an American photographic artist, researcher and educator. Schorr’s work has been widely exhibited with solo shows at esteemed spaces such as Yancey Richardson Gallery and Scalo Project Space in New York City. In 2020, Schorr’s work was honored by the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for women photographers and she recently received a grant from the Arts Council in Denmark to publish a catalogue of her current work, “The Color of Water,” with an essay by Danish Philosopher Anne Marie Kragh Pahuus to accompany a forthcoming (2021) solo show of her work at Galleri Image in Denmark.
The book project that she is working on includes selections from three inter-related bodies of work called The Color of Water:
