Serge’s work has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Schroeder Romero Gallery in Chelsea, and The Leica Gallery (New York City and Tokyo) among many other national and international solo and group exhibitions. In 2011 Princeton University Press published a book of Serge’s photographs made during his yearlong photography fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, along with essays by Institute members. Serge’s magazine photography has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Life, ESPN The Magazine, Marie Claire, Stern, and The London Sunday Times Magazine among others.
Serge has received awards from PDN, The Magenta Foundation, American Photo Magazine, Curate NYC, and The Photo Review. In 2015, he was awarded Special Recognition for “The Fire in the Freezer” by the Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize out of Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies. A copy of the self-published limited edition book of the project was recently purchased by the Center for Creative Photography for its Laura Volkerding Collection.
Serge has attended artist residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Jentel, VCCA, AS220, and was a participant in The Eddie Adams Workshop.
For over 14 years Serge has been on the faculty at the International Center of Photography in New York City where he has been a seminar leader in the documentary/photojournalism program and has taught street photography, editing, portraiture, and several other courses.
Serge lived in New York City for his whole life… until moving to the Sonoran Desert where he taught photography at the University of Arizona while completing his MFA (2015). He is currently teaching at Tohono O'odham Community College while continuing his street photography in the desert.
In addition to his photography, Serge is a writer and enjoys sketching. He is an avid outdoorsman and relishes any opportunity to hike through the desert, climb a mountainside, rappel through a canyon, and whip up a Backpacker’s Pantry buffet with a good group of friends under a remote nighttime sky.
