Sarah-Dona Manev was born in Paris, France, from a Bulgarian father and a Dutch mother. She spent parts of her childhood in France, Bulgaria and the Netherlands. Her upbringing within a constant changing surrounding has strongly inﬂuenced here as a person and as an artist. With the result that the topic of identity in relation to ‘home’ (the idea of feeling connected to one place) is strongly present in her work. Sarah works in Amsterdam as a photographer and visual artist. She has studied Fine Arts at the Royal Academy in The Hague and at the Photography Academy in Amsterdam. She has made several photo series and installations around the subjects of non-places and human-facades. Most of her work can be placed within the broader theme of identity.
