Biography and career

Sara Badr Schmidt



"Borderless" is a work on the borders that I started ten years ago, it highlights the limits of the borders but also the enrichment that different cultures bring, proposing another reading of the geographical borders and time.


It presents, among other things, skies captured in different parts of the world. The only clues about where these pictures were taken are words that reflect a specific feature of the place.


The photo initiator of the "Borderless" project was taken in southern Lebanon on the Lebanese-Israeli border. These photos are drawn on canvas and mounted on light boxes. Some are accompanied by a soundtrack.


The photos are drawn on canvas to blur the tracks between photo and painting, a nod to impressionist artists of the early 20th century who stood out from the photograph.
