Photographer #107: Sarah Sudhoff

Sarah Sudhoff, USA, 1977, is currently working on a series called At the Hour of our Death and 2217. 2217 features four individuals with Neurofibromatosis. It causes tumors to grow throughout the body and she hopes to raise awareness and compassion when the viewer studies the nearly life size images. In her series Repository, which she also self-published as a book in 2009, she took photographs of herself and the surroundings of hospitals, morgues, medical museums and her doctor's offices. Sarah started this project after her surgery for cervical cancer. In the series At the Hour of our Death, she takes pictures of textiles that show the signs of someone passing away. The following images come from At the Hour of  our Death, Hysteria and Repository.
