From the Desk of

Alive and Kicking

Despite the fact that I haven't posted anything for a lonnnnng time, I am still around. I just finished updating my exhibitions list and am going to work on freshening up the galleries today. 

Meanwhile, here's what's new.

Workwise, I'm finally at a place where I'm getting regular jobs. I am primarily doing real estate shoots these days and I love them. Lots of work for local Realtors' individual listings, and also doing post-processing work for a friend who shoots from NY to DC and in betwee for property management companies who rent out luxury apartment buildings. 

Artwise, I have a big solo show this June! It is two weeks only so be sure to get there. The Impermanence of Being  will be a retrospective featuring work of mine from the past 11+ years in abandoned places. I'm very excited about it!

I also just found out that this piece was accepted into The Art of the State. The exhibition will run from June 24 to September 9 at the State Museum in Harrisburg. Artists who are Pennsylvania residents will compete in five categories: Painting, Work on Paper, Photography, Sculpture, and Craft. 

In July I am taking part in a group show curated by my mother and fellow artist Rosalind Bloom, Look at US, with work that acknowledges and explores their own privilege, opens up a dialogue on issues of continued relevance such as gender inequality, other past and present social injustices, and the history of American racial tensions. I will be showing totally different work than my usual and the exhibit promises to be a powerful one. 


Reclamations on The Main Line!
Thursday, September 3, 2015 - 17:10

Our show was so successful in April, we decided to take it "on the road" out to the suburbs so people could park ;)

New work from both of us!

Sarah R. Bloom and Rosalind Bloom bring their art to the suburbs!
"Reclamations on the Main Line" is a two person show of photography, collage and mixed media work by a mother and daughter,
each exploring the transformation of something old into something new. 

Sarah R. Bloom was named "Best Visual Artist" in Philadelphia Magazine's 2015 Best of Philly issue.

Reclamations on the Main Line will run throughout the month of September and include work not seen previously.
All the artwork is for sale and a portion of the proceeds will go to support the New Leaf Club, a nonprofit community center dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for young people.

"The past is reclaimed for the present. Ephemera of times gone by are retrieved and then transformed by our thoughts, experiences, current perspective, and the creative process into something new and different. Bits and pieces carved out of earlier work spark something new. Art is about transformation; something that existed one way is reclaimed and becomes something else."
-Rosalind Bloom

You need to update your websites with nice head shots of your current employees. You don't want to waste time.

Let me come set up a little studio area at your office and have you and your employees come in at set times for 10 minute sessions.
Individual head shot sessions normally $100.

You give me
3-5 people? $75 each!
6-10 people? $65 each!
More than that, we'll talk.

No other costs, you and your employees get access to at least 3 digital images to download and use on the website, Facebook, LinkedIn, whatever!

Let me help you and your company look good.

Solo Show in July
Monday, June 23, 2014 - 19:26


I will be showing from two different series at the White Pines Place (7908 High School Rd, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania 19027). One is a series of self-portraits in abandoned locations utilizing a plastic sheet. The other series, my daily self-portrait project for 2014, is digital double exposures—an abstract nude self-portrait and an additional photo taken each day, then layered in Photoshop to create the double exposure effect. I began the series on January 1st. My plan is to be showing some mixed media pieces using older photographs as well.

ALSO! The incredibly talented improv group Bright Invention will be performing after the reception (at 8pm), pulling from a basket of my photographs for prompts (photos they will have never seen). These photos will be self-portraits as well as personal family photos. I cannot wait to see what they do and I strongly encourage you to get tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event! Link to RSVP for the reception and to purchase tickets for the performance is below.

At the risk of boring you to death with information about me, I was interviewed again for Amanda Hirsch's blog :)I think she asked great questions that brought out different kind of answers to previous interviews, so you will learn new things about me here!

In the News Again!
Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - 11:27
Yesterday I appeared in The Temple News two times, in a print interview and as the featured media (video snippet)!
The video is only just over a minute which cracked me up because I spoke with Avory for over half an hour and even filled up a memory card. The printed interview with Keri Ann is also very truncated from our original conversation, but that's how things roll in the big time, folks

I am grateful for the opportunity to talk about my work, always. Thank you so much to Avory Brookins & Noe Garcia for the video interview, and to Keri Ann Raimo for the printed one! It was a pleasure speaking to each of you.

I am so honored to have been interviewed by my friend and fellow photographer Ethan Wallace for Hidden City Philadelphia. What a wonderful organization (of which I am a proud member)!
