About the Artist

Sarah Bergmann (Seattle) received a 2004 GAP to purchase a digital camera and cover the costs of printing photographs for an upcoming exhibition addressing the “kinds of built environments that humans create for themselves, and how these environments affect our reality.” The genesis of this project was observing a father and son playing basketball underneath a freeway in Oakland, CA and led to a series that explores people’s ability to adapt to inhospitable environments. Sarah has recently been featured in The Stranger’s Art & Performance Quarterly.
