Sarah Illenberger is a Berlin-based artist whose first book is set to publish by Gestalten in August 2011.

Sarah Illenberger’s book features 128 full color pages of vivid content mixed with a flash of humor; each image in the photographs features social issues that are present in society today. Sarah Illenberger's use of photography displays a mix of art and design to visually show the relationship between social issues and relevant resources. The use of everyday household items from food to clothing becomes effortlessly relatable when seen through the viewer's eyes -- these items are used to force an impactful meaning to them.

Sarah Illenberger's use of art, graphic design, and photography in her first book cleverly makes it point.
