Hi, I’m Sarah.
I am a German-Chinese photographer and designer from Hong Kong. I love branding, storytelling and all things digital. I am an alumni of Google’s Empowering Young Entrepreneurs Program and the founder of TwentyBliss.
Clients: Google, Leica, Levi’s, Adidas, VSCO, Moment, Big Trouble Pizza and Shanghai Tang.
Currently based in: Toronto. Available worldwide.
In our contemporary era of fast-paced sound bites and flashes of imagery, I romanticise the idea of slowing viewers down with my photographs. Seeking out quiet moments in people, places and the in-between; I like to be aware of what makes me stop in this world.
After spending some time as a photographer in Oakland, I moved back to Hong Kong and worked in galleries, publications, fashion, and product design.
I started TwentyBliss to create a platform for emerging creatives; curating exhibitions in Hong Kong (partnering with Art Basel + Art Central) and Los Angeles. In 2015, Creative Executive named me one of their "Favourite Movers and Shakers". The list of seventeen included Martin Parr, The Satorialist, Vice Magazine and AirBnB to name a few, and a nomination for Hong Kong's Most Valuable Company Award followed soon after.
I’m probably cooler online than I am IRL.
Sarah Kohler is one of our favorite movers and shakers. In an industry that often looks to curators and critics to decide what is assigned value, making time, space, and a platform for young talent to get exposure is critical. Sarah made the jump out on her own before most of her peers – a bold move that is paying off!
