The Artist

Experience the beautiful intricacies of the sea through the fine art lens of Brian Sager, an award winning nautical photographer. Established on the island of Nantucket and working internationally, Brian predominantly creates his fine art photographs from the water. Whether he’s crewing aboard a classic yacht in a renowned classic yacht regatta, sailing offshore from New England to the Caribbean, or paddling through tidal creeks, Brian seeks to use light to showcase the often unsung details of the nautical world. 

With a lifetime of sailing experience and more than 10,000 miles of offshore sailing under his belt, Brian showcases the allure of the marine world. He combines his profound understanding of sailing with a keen artistic eye, creating masterful images with lasting impact. Brian’s ultimate goal through fine art photography is to encourage others to engage with the beauty and complexity of the sea.

The Images

Brian's seascapes elegantly capture the beautiful, and sometimes tempestuous interplay between the sea and the elements. His sailing photographs offer a portal into the innumerable fleeting moments of sailing. Although the subtleties of sailing are typically reserved for sailors themselves, Brian invites his viewers to experience the raw emotions surrounding the sport that are often difficult to articulate. Whether it’s the thrill of a regatta start, the adrenaline rush of rounding a windward mark, or the paradoxical allure of calm & windless day, he asks his viewers to immerse themselves directly into the experience. 

Installations

Recent notable installations include a 20x10' print for Nantucket Cottage Hospital (pictured), a large-scale installation for Montefiore Medical Center's Fine Art Program, multi-paneled project for the Nantucket Community Music Center, as well as custom commissions for many private homes and offices around the globe.

In 2020, Brian received the Artist Association of Nantucket's Photography Award. Brian and his wife, Carey, opened Sager Fine Art in the heart of Cohasset Village, and welcomed their first child in 2022!
