Sarah Wong studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie for Visual Art and Design. She was inspired by Magnum photographers as Robert Capa and Henri Cartier Bresson. Her vision on photography has a strong compassionate engagement. Her world famous portraits from Dutch transgender children, looking for a new identity, were published in international newspapers as Scientific American, Huffington Post.

Wongs latest search for identity and authenticity are floral works, exhibited in USA and Australia.  

Sarah Wong's very first solo project was a public art exhibition beside the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum, with 3x3 meter billboards about solar energy. The outdoor exhibition made her the focus of international attention. She portrayed musicians as Andrea Bocelli for CD covers. Her first photo book, Sophia's Children, about a childrens hospital was published in 2003. For the photo book Inside Out / Portraits of Cross-gender Children, she followed a group children for seven years.
