New York, NY, USA
Sarah Stacke's personal work looks at daily life in communities whose geographic borders were shaped during periods of colonization. Often spending time with a community over the course of months or years, she looks at the intersection of culture and memory and questions how land, and the loss of it, shapes identities.
Sarah’s personal and assignment work have taken her around the world with an emphasis on South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and within the U.S.A, North Carolina, New York, South Dakota and Minnesota. Select clients include National Geographic, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Topic, BuzzFeed, STAT by Boston Globe Media, The Wall Street Journal, Open Society Foundations, International Rescue Committee and Photo District News.
In 2012 Sarah received a master’s degree from Duke University tailored to analyze photographic representations of African and African-American communities. She's an adjunct faculty member at the International Center of Photography and Duke's Center for Documentary Studies and the author of Photos Day or Night: The Archive of Hugh Mangum (Red Hook Editions, 2018).

Danny & Joe
Danny Grassrope and Joseph White Eyes, both Lakota, met at the #NODAPL movement at Standing Rock. When the camps were disbanded, they moved downriver to the Lower Brule Reservation in South Dakota, where Danny is from.
Their love for each other is the bedrock of the work they do in Lower Brule and in Joe’s hometown, the Cheyenne River Reservation to create positive change for their people and the land.
Danny and Joe strive to bring messages of unity, humanitarianism and environmental awareness to their families and neighbors. Lower Brule and Cheyenne River are under-resourced communities. The rates of diabetes and heart disease, suicide, domestic abuse, and addiction are high; the average life expectancy trails that of other Americans. As Danny and Joe personally struggle with many of these very issues, they dedicate themselves to encouraging others to uplift themselves and persevere.
