Sara Armas started studying darkroom photography at age twelve and eventually finished a BFA in 2006 from Maine College of Art. In 2014, she finished an MA in photography from Barry University, and recently she also completed an MA in art history at Oklahoma State University. She currently resides in Belgium, where she divides her time between independent research for a PhD at KU Leuven, and her studio practice. Sara’s work has come to focus generally on women’s issues, growing out of a ten year period in Miami of self-portraiture and documentary practice. She has also explored alternative processes and shot for humanitarian purposes. Sara has exhibited at the ICA, Art Basel and Loosen Art Rome. She has presented her work at the MOCA Miami, was published as a finalist in Photography Forum’s Best of 2015, and has published a scholarly article in the Royal Photographic Society (London, 2016).
