Sandra Bacchi is a Brazilian photographer, based in Pittsburgh, PA. As a visual artist, she blends documentary and conceptual photography to register her personal journey, weaving fiction into the truths to express more open-ended storytelling. Earning a degree in photography at Escola Panamericana de Artes (São Paulo, Brazil -1997), Bacchi turned her focus to cinematography, learning from Academy Award winner Vilmos Zsigmond. In 2012, Sandra moved to NYC with her family and returned to her roots in photography at International Center of Photography.
Sandra is currently an artist-in-residence at Pittsburgh Glass Center exploring the concept of immigration for “The United Exhibition” in 2020. She has been featured on LensCratch, A Curator; and attended the Santa Fe Review 2018, and Woodstock Portfolio Review 2019.
