Sarah Sampedro is a Minneapolis-based photographer interested in social systems, relationships, community, and belonging. She was 2011/12 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant, 2018 recipient of the University of Minnesota Berlin Artist Residency, chaired the Minneapolis Art Commission, and sat on the Minneapolis Public Arts Advisory Panel. Her interest lies in revealing some of the hidden factors that construct social relationships: she has photographed her Minneapolis neighborhood in the midst of an argument over historic designation and gentrification, created a multi-media installation using racially restrictive real estate contracts from Hennepin County, and traveled across Europe, researching and photographing places where border walls have been built. She is motivated by questions about the psychological and constructed space that exists between people.

Cyanotypes

George Floyd’s death is one in a long line of unnecessary police violence against black and brown people. Our society must not continue this way. Please do what you can to support systemic change in our government and society. Perhaps that means addressing your own deep seated racial beliefs, learning about US racial history, talking with your neighbor, calling your legislators, attending a protest, donating groceries, or selectively using your resources. All kinds of equity work are valuable.

This series of cyanotypes was made in memory of George Floyd and 100% of their proceeds go to Juxtaposition Arts and Reclaim the Block. If you want to donate money to another organization you believe in, here is a list of resources in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

  • Juxtaposition Arts is a youth art and design education center, gallery, retail shop, and artists’ studio space in North Minneapolis. Juxta offers free classes and employment for neighborhood youth.
  • Reclaim the Block organizes Minneapolis community and city council members to move money from the police department into other areas of the city’s budget that truly promote community health and safety. They organize around policies that strengthen community-led safety initiatives and reduce reliance on police departments.

Photographs

Photography is my first art love and a way I process my life and the world around me. I have a lot of anxiety and am always looking for peace and order. These are some moments of calm I’ve found and I hope they instill a myriad of feelings in you, too.

Most photographs can be made larger at 28″x42″ or 40″x60.” Custom sizes are also available. Please ask.

Paintings

After finishing an MFA in Photography I was burned out and needed a rest, so, I started painting again. I hope you enjoy these magical spaces as much as I do. Vascillating between cellular and cosmic, they shrink and expand every time I look at them. Entire worlds exist within the edge of the frame.
