Author/Artist Bio

Sarah Stacke's personal work develops daily life stories about people living in under-resourced and narrowly represented communities created by intersections of history, culture, and forced geographies. She often spends time with a person or community over the course of months or years. In 2012 Sarah received a master's degree from Duke University tailored to analyze photographic representations of sub-Saharan Africa. She teaches at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies and the International Center of Photography and writes about photography for publications including National Geographic and Photo District News. Sarah's work has taken her around the world with an emphasis on South Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo; and within the U.S.A, North Carolina, New York, and Minnesota. She has worked with institutions like The New York Times, The New Yorker, Al Jazeera, The Wall Street Journal, Oxford American, and Open Society Foundations.
