Sara Hylton

Sara Hylton is a Canadian documentary and portrait photographer based between Brooklyn, New York and New Delhi, India.  Sara completed a post-graduate certificate in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the International Center of Photography and also holds a Master of Arts in International Conflict Studies from Kings College London. When Sara is not working with international organizations, she can be found in a quaint corner of the world pursuing personal projects.

Sara’s principal medium is the portrait. She believes that through this documentation she is able to share an exchange with her varied subjects and capture them in their most natural state of being. Resilience, humanity, and the quiet beauty in everyday life guides her work. Sara has been featured by the New York Times, the Financial Times, Reuters, Smithsonian Magazine, the Guardian, American Photo, and Ricochet News among others. Sara was also nominated for PDN’s 30 Emerging Photographers to watch (2014).
