My photographic explorations mirror the disjointed, fragmented and conflicted nature of my personal experiences and use visual metaphors that layer textures, reflecting internal chaos and emotional turbulence.
Accompanying the exhibition of the same name, we are pleased to offer a catalog showcasing the vision and creativity of Philip Sager and Veiled Actualities.
Philip Sager is a fine art photographer who grew up in the heart of New York City, filled with experiences that only an international city can offer. He now lives across the county in another geographically small but equally urban center: San Francisco.
While his artistic work focuses on confronting the complexity of perception and how our brains simplify, absorb, and comprehend information, Sager is directly influenced by his subliminal mind, memory, and metaphors mirroring the fragmented and conflictual nature of emotive experience. It comes naturally for Sager to combine art and science, given his long academic and professional history of scientific pursuits researching the heart and the mind. Sager studied photography at MIT, Yale University, the Apeiron Workshops.
His photographs are firmly placed in the real world, as they are created “in camera” as single images without multiple exposures or added content during post-processing.
His work is in private collections and has been shown in multiple galleries.
