Hello! I'm Sarah Tilotta, an American photographer and multimedia producer based in London, UK.
Since completing a Masters in Photojournalism (2014) at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication, I've worked in various roles throughout the visual media industry: as a freelance photojournalist in the US and abroad, in the NPR newsroom as Digital News Picture Editor and Visual Journalist Intern, and in sales and communications roles for NOOR Images, the Amsterdam-based documentary photo agency and foundation.
My personal work often explores themes of migration, including the cultural and socioeconomic tensions that arise between new arrivals and established communities, as well as internal tensions brought on by the experience of migration itself. My projects Living in Limbo, Gentrifying New Orleans, Ravenswood, and Soy Dominicana explore these dynamics, with the intent of producing dialogue and introspection between seemingly disparate groups, and society at large.
While I continue to pursue short and long-term documentary projects in a constantly evolving industry, I also challenge my relationship to the medium through emerging platforms and various roles - as creator, editor, curator, producer, marketer, and consumer of multimedia - seeking increasingly effective ways to communicate visually about the world we live in today.
