"Sage Sohier's photography opens a window onto the marvelous, onto what Surrealist artist and author André Breton called “the fabric of adorable improbabilities:" a world of adult fairy tales in which “fear, the attraction of the unusual, chance, (and) the taste for things extravagant" appear in surprising forms. Sohier's encounter with the marvelous takes us deep into private terrain, into a world of near-obsessive collections, hobbies, adornments, achievements, and attentions to detail. Her images register a desire for control and perfection in a world that - more often than not of late - seems to have slipped into chaos, destined for political and environmental ruin."
