About the Artist
Sarah Sampedro is a Minneapolis-based photographer interested in social systems, relationships, community, and belonging. Her interest lies in revealing some of the hidden factors that construct social relationships: she has photographed her Minneapolis neighborhood in the midst of an argument over historic designation and gentrification, created a multi-media installation using racially restrictive real estate contracts from Hennepin County, and traveled across Europe to research and photograph border walls.
