Sara Davidmann is an artist/photographer. For 14 years (1999-2013) Sara took photographs and carried out oral history recordings in collaboration with people from UK transgender and queer and communities. Self-representation, transgender relationships, children and families form a focus of this work.
Sara’s photographs are internationally exhibited and published. Since 2013 Sara’s work on ‘the family’ has focused on her own family and family history. Her project, Ken. To be destroyed, which tells the story of her transgender uncle, has been published as a monograph (Schilt 2016), edited by the writer and curator Val Williams. This project has been exhibited in Germany, Canada, India, Northern Ireland and the UK.
Sara is currently working on a project based on her German Jewish family history for which she has been awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize. Previous awards for her work include a Fulbright Hays Scholarship, four Arts and Humanities Research Council awards, an Association of Commonwealth Universities Fellowship and a Wellcome Trust Small grant.
Sara is a Reader in Photography at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
