    About The Work

    Celebrated photographer Collier Schorr confronts the ambiguities of identity formation in Self Portrait # 1 (American), part of an early series of four self-portraits. Posed with a borrowed Harley Davidson, grease smeared across her face and eyes squinting, Schorr slips into a fictive reality. Resolutely American in its historical references to '50s biker culture and Elvis-style pinups, but actually taken in Germany, the image invites multiple levels of interpretation. The artist performs roles of class, gender, and sexuality in this rare self-portrait.
