Sarah Tilotta is an American-born visual producer who documents issues stemming from the phenomenon of globalization, with a focus on migration, statelessness, and the intersection between ‘native’ and migrant communities.
Sarah holds a Masters in Photojournalism from the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University (2014), and a Bachelors in Visual Arts from Fordham University, Lincoln Center (2006). Her master’s project – a multimedia primer on statelessness in the Dominican Republic – won an award from the 2014 College Photographer of the Year for Solo Journalist Multimedia Essay.
Shortly after completing her graduate studies, Sarah interned as Digital News Picture Editor and Visual Journalist at NPR in Washington, D.C. There she produced and published a follow-up story and images on the Dominican regularization plan to address statelessness of Haitian-Dominicans.
In early 2015, Sarah participated in selective photo workshops with Magnum Photos in London and World Press Photo in Amsterdam. She currently splits time between the two cities, freelancing as an editorial photographer based in London, and conducting communications and sales for NOOR Images, a documentary photo agency headquartered in Amsterdam.
Sarah is currently engaged in producing a multi-country visual reportage on the migration crisis across the European Union.
