Hello! I'm Sarah Tilotta, an Irish-American visual producer based in London, England.
I'm interested in the creation and facilitation of transmedia visual communication - through pictures, video, audio, journalism, and art - shared across the many engagement platforms available today.
My personal projects often document issues related to globalization, including topics around migration, industry, and the environment. I seek out subject matter that confronts socioeconomic tensions between established local communities and relatively recent arrivals. My projects Living in Limbo, Gentrifying New Orleans, Ravenswood, and Soy Dominicana explore these relationships, with the intent of producing dialogue and introspection between seemingly disparate groups, as well as outside observers.
Since completing a Masters in Photojournalism at the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in the spring of 2014, I've worked in various aspects of the visuals industry: in the NPR newsroom as Digital News Picture Editor and Visual Journalist Intern; freelancing as a photojournalist in Baltimore & London; and joining the Amsterdam-based team behind the international photo agency collective, NOOR Images, in sales and communications roles. I've also lived earlier lives as a teacher and talent in China, in both the publishing and art sectors of New York, and as an event photographer in Chicago.
I've been known to pursue diverse skills, experiences, and interests in this constantly evolving visuals industry, always challenging my relationship to the medium - as creator, editor, marketer...; but whatever position I hold, I continuously strive to develop and maintain my personal visual practice - the results of which I share on this site.
