Sarah Sampedro is a photographer interested in social systems, relationships, community, and belonging. She was 2011/12 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, 2018 recipient of the University of Minnesota Berlin Artist Residency, chaired the Minneapolis Art Commission, and sat on the Minneapolis Public Arts Advisory Panel. 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, MN, and traveled across Europe, researching and photographing places where border walls have been built. She is motivated by questi- ons about the psychological and constructed space that exists between people.
