Sarah Anne Wharton was born in D.C. and grown in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, France, Maine, and New Mexico. Her photographic experience began as a ten-year-old with a 110-film format camera: a sleek, black tube, half the size of a sandwich. She brought it with her everywhere. From then on, whenever she roams, SAW keeps at least one camera strapped around her neck and a myriad of whistled tunes between her lips.
Sarah has a Bachelor of Arts in Photojournalism and French from Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania and studied documentary photography at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine.
Curious and exuberant, unobtrusive and down-to-earth, Sarah currently works, lives, and plays out of Brooklyn, New York and the northeast.
