A limited-edition print from the exhibition More American Photographs at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art in San Francisco, CA, Collier Schorr's Young Rider portrays a young cowboy at the threshold of manhood, his adolescent fragility still palpable. Schorr's photographs often look at gender construction, youth, and role playing.

As a part of this exhibit, which commissioned twelve photographers to travel the country and document the land and its people in the tradition of the Depression-era Farm Security Administration, Schorr's work present two visions of America that exist simultaneously: the privileged desire for fame and fortune meets with its underbelly, the imminent drive for survival.

Collier Schorr has photographed American and German youth, soldiers, and flowers in her artwork for over twenty years, in addition to shooting fashion editorials and celebrity portraits for Interview, Vogue, and Numéro. She is best known for startling and personal images of American high school wrestlers in the throes of struggle; her other work follows this examination of gender construction, fact and fiction in photography, and gaze and desire with a feminist critique. Often conceptually driven, Schorr has also used drawing, collage, and performance to illustrate her emotional and critical perspective.

One of the few photographers featured in the 2002 Whitney Biennial, Schorr's work has been exhibited internationally, including a 2006 retrospective at Badischer Kunstverein, Germany; a solo exhibition at CoCA Kronika, Bytom, Poland in 2010, and a recent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY. She was a fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, Germany from 2007—2008.Read Less
