About Sarah Stacke

Sarah Stacke is a photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. She also spends a lot of time in North Carolina where she is making photographs of the people and land comprising the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation. Also in North Carolina, Sarah teaches and generates projects that ask viewers to think critically about cross-cultural visual literacy at Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies. When she’s not in Brooklyn or NC she’s likely in Africa, shooting Love From Manenberg, a long-form documentary project in Cape Town, South Africa. Or, in the Democratic Republic of Congo where she’s developing an archival project in collaboration with photographers in Kinshasa.

In addition to making photographs, Sarah has written about photography for The New York Times Lens Blog and the Nasher Museum. She is the curator of Keep All You Wish: The Photographs of Hugh Mangum, and exhibitions featuring imagery from sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2012 she received a Master of Arts from Duke University tailored to research photographic representations of sub-Saharan Africa and the diaspora.

Clients and publications include The New York Times, The Atlantic, Time Out New York, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald, The Boston Globe, Marie Claire, YMCA, KARIBU Kinshasa, HOPE Cape Town, SONKE Gender Justice Network, the Moth, Live from the NYPL, WNYC and Yéle Haiti.

She began her career as an assistant to Burt Glinn of Magnum Photos.

Lastly, Sarah organizes a gathering for photographers called BYOP&V (bring your own photo & video), and she would love for you to join.
