Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Sarah’s work ranges from photography to her Tableau Vivant performances. She studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated in 2001. In 2009, she taught Portrait Photography at the Parsons School of Design, and has taught both high-school students and adults in darkroom photography. Small’s work has appeared in numerous publications including Vogue, Life, and The New York Times. Her work has been exhibited globally at venues such as Caprice Horn Gallery, The Corcoran Gallery, and the Australian Center for Photography, and was named one of the “Top 13 Emerging Photographers” working today, by American Photo Magazine [1]. In 2011, she was featured in The Washington Post and The New York Times for rench for "living picture." The term describes a striking group of suitably costumed actors or artist's her 120-model Tableau Vivant performances[2][3].

Tableau vivant (plural: tableaux vivants) is models, carefully posed and often theatrically lit. Throughout the duration of the display, the people shown do not speak or move. The approach thus marries the art forms of the stage with those of painting/photography, and as such it has been of interest to modern photographers.
