Sara Guren is a fine art photographer whose work explores her life as an artist, athlete and mother. With a film camera always within reach, she captures the personal and the emotional in everyday life — joy, paradox, solitude. Her photography looks to find the moment captured in a tiny fraction of a second, in order to stop time, savor it, and understand it.
Sara is a graduate of The Rocky Mountain School of Photography (2002, 2003) and went on to begin her career photographing fine art landscapes. Her limited-edition macro photography orchid work, Floralscapes, debuted at the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s Gallery and was featured at their Orchid Mania event in 2005. Sara went on to photograph for non-profit organizations such as Cuyahoga Valley National Park, various Montessori Schools across the country and the North American Montessori Teacher’s Association. Her fine artwork has been featured in The Center for Fine Art Photography’s alternative process juried show and non-profit work showcased around the world in the Maria Montessori Centennial travelling show. Additionally, Sara’s photographs are a part of private collections across the country from California to New York. Sara began teaching photography to Montessori Middle School students in 2003 and continues on today as the Visual Arts Coordinator for Hershey Montessori School’s Huntsburg Campus teaching art to 7th – 12th graders.
