ELAINE SANDERS

PHOTOGRAPHY & DESIGN

BASED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Art was not on Sanders’ roadmap early in life; she was set to follow in her father's footsteps and pursue a career in the life sciences. During high school she was a part of the BioScience Academy where she was rigorously trained in medical and lab techniques. From this training, Sanders developed an eye for accuracy and attention to detail which she directly applies to her work. Sanders’ methodology is informed by the scientific method, something that has been ingrained in her since childhood as she was raised by analytical and logical parents.  

 

Sanders has travelled to five of the seven world continents, exposing her to a wide range of cultures and perspectives. From her travels she has gained a spark for sharing stories, especially those that are not often seen or heard. Much of her work is focused on sharing stories in a manner that allows her audience to relate even though they may be hundreds miles away in location and perspective.

 

Both science and travel directly feed into Sanders' passion of respecting the natural world. She is intrigued by the juxtaposition of natural and the built environments which can be seen in many of her photographs. 

 

Sanders is currently pursuing a Bachelors of Arts in art with a concentration in photography and graphic design at California State University, Northridge helping to inform her passion for communication and the arts.
