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. Sarah was 2011/12 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, 2018 recipient of the University of Minnesota Berlin Artist Residency, 2019 recipient of the Picture Berlin Artist Residency, chaired the Minneapolis Art Commission, and sat on the Minneapolis Public Arts Advisory Panel. She holds an MFA in Photography and Moving Images from the University of Minnesota and currently teaches at Upper Iowa University and the University of Minnesota.
