Sahar was born in 1966 in Ramat Gan, Israel, to Iraqi immigrants. At 21, she began studying photography at the "Camera Obscura" School of Art in Tel Aviv. As a student, Sahar worked at photojournalism for major Israeli publications including "Yediot Ahronot" and "Maariv". Sahar's first of many major exhibitions was called "Princess Bingo" in which she depicted characters from the margins of the Tel Aviv nightlife scene. Her works were praised and described as an honest dialogue with people that are usually treated stereotypically, including prostitutes, transexuals and gamblers. Some of Sahar's other iconic works are her photographs of celebrities. Throughout her career Sahar received many honors for her works including Israel's "Young Artist" award and the Tel Aviv Museum's "Constantiner Photography" award. She lives and works in Tel Aviv.
