Sarah Engelhard (1980) is a Dutch photographer and marine biologist. She lives currently on the Gold Coast. She earned a BA in photography at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (2005), and, recently, she completed a PhD marine ecology at Griffith University Gold Coast (2017). Alongside her scientific work, she has continued to be active as an artist. Her photographic work has been exhibited internationally and she received several grants in The Netherlands. A fascination for human presence in nature motivates her work in both disciplines.
