New York, NY, USA
Sarah Stacke is an American photographer whose personal work develops intimate stories about people living in under-resourced and narrowly represented communities created by intersections of history, culture, and geography. She often spends time with a person or community over the course of months or years and is interested in the impact of forced geographical relocations over multiple generations. In 2012 Sarah received a master’s degree from Duke University tailored to analyze photographic representations of sub-Saharan Africa. As a 2014-2015 Lewis Hine Fellow she worked with exalt, a Brooklyn-based organization that serves court-involved youth. She teaches at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies and the International Center of Photography and writes about photography for publications including Photo District News and National Geographic.
Sarah’s personal work and editorial clients have taken her around the world with a particular emphasis on South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and within the U.S.A, Cherokee, North Carolina and the Bronx, New York. Along the way she has worked with institutions like The New York Times, The New Yorker, Al Jazeera, The Wall Street Journal, UN Women, Open Society Foundations, and Planned Parenthood.
