Photographer Tabitha Soren's pictures are metaphors for the difficult twists and turns of everyday living. They speak to the twists of fate in life that can unhinge us. Whether it’s disquieting images of people in mid-fight or flight in the Running series or in her tribute to panic attacks, the oceanscape series Panic Beach, Soren is most interested in what human beings can survive – and what they can’t.

Her newest book, Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream, is also about a psychological state. Her ambitious players are all striving to touch greatness. Soren followed 21 members of the Oakland A’s 2002 draft class with her camera for over a decade — basically the entire lifespan of the average pro sports career. This involved shooting pictures of players spending time on farm teams, waiting to get called up to The Show, with frequent trades, big breaks, broken hearts, day jobs, long bus trips, injuries, waiting around, calling plays from the dugout, gum and tobacco chewing, praying, bonding, and aging. The resulting photobook, Fantasy Life, doesn’t merely reflect the dreams of these players but it reflects the dystopia that’s out in the world right now.

Soren left a successful career in television in 1999 to start another one as a photographer. Her work is included in public collections such as LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Oakland Museum of California; Transformer Station, Cleveland, Ohio; Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco; New Orleans Museum of Art; Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Indiana; and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans. Soren’s photography has been featured in Dear Dave, McSweeney's, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, Blink, Slate.com, New York, Sports Illustrated, California Sunday Magazine, and ESPN The Magazine. She is represented by the Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles
