Sharon Lockhart

Country: United States of America

Over the last 20 years, Sharon Lockhart has worked with individuals and groups to make still and moving images that are both visually compelling and socially engaged. In collaborations that sometimes unfold over the span of years, Lockhart works with her subjects to understand aspects of their lives while sharing with them the images and histories that join them. Ultimately creating films and photographs that embody a common creative experience, Lockhart and her subjects develop works through an organic process that integrates research and personal interaction. Recently she has focused her practice on young people, investigating issues of pedagogy as well as children’s agency, autonomy, rights, and their individual voices.
