Hello! I'm Sarah Tilotta, an Irish-American visual producer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, currently working and learning at NOOR Images.
Before joining the NOOR team in 2015, I was a freelancer based in London. In the summer of 2014 I worked as Digital News Picture Editor and Visual Journalist Intern at NPR in Washington, DC. I completed a Masters in Photojournalism at the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in the spring of 2014.
Much of my personal work documents issues related to globalization, including migration, industry, and the environment. I’m particularly interested in stories that confront socioeconomic tensions between established local communities and recently-arrived migrants. My projects Gentrifying New Orleans, Ravenswood, and Soy Dominicana explore the relationships between these two groups.
My masters project, a multimedia introduction to statelessness in the Dominican Republic, recently won an award from College Photographer of the Year for Solo Journalist Multimedia Essay. I was selected and participated in World Press Photo's Storytelling After Dark Workshop in April 2015 in Amsterdam, and Magnum Photos' Professional Practice Masterclass in February 2015, in London.
I'm currently available for assignments and collaborations worldwide.
