Sara J. Winston is a New York-based artist currently living and working in the Hudson Valley. Using photography, writing, and print media, her work explores representations of sickness, wellness, healthcare, and the ways in which chronic illness is managed both within and outside of medical contexts.
She is currently working on a multi-volume project investigating autoimmune disease, looking closely at the "genetic & environmental factors" that are believed to be the cause of her body's illness. Two previously published volumes of this work include the books A Lick and a Promise published by Candor Arts in 2017, and Homesick published by Zatara Press in 2015 .
Winston earned her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2014. Her work has been exhibitted nationally and internationally and is held in public collections including Yale's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library and University of Michigan’s Artist Book Collection.
