Sara Oscar is a Sydney based artist of Southeast and South Asian descent. Her work is concerned with the role photography plays in capturing and classifying human identity that accumulates in archives as a photographic way of seeing the world. She uses techniques of text-image interplay, collage, and installation with photography to unravel these ideas. She has exhibited extensively in institutions throughout Australia, and her work is held in numerous private and public collections. Oscar was the 2022 recipient of the John and Margaret Baker Fellowship in the National Photography Prize, Murray Art Museum, Albury. She is Senior Lecturer in Visual Communication at the University of Technology, Sydney.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
