Liz Sanders is a documentary photographer/videographer based in Brooklyn, New York. She is a graduate of the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism Program at the International Center for Photography.
Her work focuses on the intersection of tradition and modernity and how that affects individual and collective identities, especially within communities experiencing change. Her background in Anthropology, languages and years spent on organic farms with feet and hands in the soil all inform her eye and her interests as a storyteller.
Originally from Arkansas, she has a slight obsession with American blues music (specifically Son House), anything written by Carson McCullers, anything photographed by William Eggleston and the way light hits kudzu vines in late summer.
