Born in Tokyo to parents who traveled the world, Sarah Silver first fell in love with photography while working in her grandfather’s darkroom. Shortly after finishing her Master’s Degree in Photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, she was chosen to shoot for Surface Magazine’s prestigious Avant Guardian issue. Using dancers as models, the fashion shoot marked the beginning of Sarah’s love for combining movement and photography.
