Sharon Lockhart is a photographer and filmmaker. Her photographic and filmic works interrogate the inversion of the static image as cinematic and the manipulation of the moving image into a static/stop-motion frame. Her work also contemplates how we perceive our own real-time realities.

Her first film, Khabil, A Woman Under the Influence, was completed in 1994. In 1996 Lockhart was awarded a grant from the Asian Cultural Council to spend three months in Japan. While there, Lockhart made her first feature film, Goshogaoka, which features a suburban junior high school girls’ basketball team. Lockhart has exhibited her photographs internationally and teaches at UCLA and the Art Center College of Design.
