Sandra's passion is photographing the lifestyles, cultures and traditions of people around the world. She has travelled to 56 countries over several years, documenting the people she meets. Most recently she has realized the power of her images to raise awareness of social and cultural issues facing young people, especially females in developing countries. As a former educator, Sandra continues to lead photography workshops in San Miguel de Allende, Pozos, Patzcuaro, and Toronto.
Sandra's 2013 exhibit, "Behind the Land of Smiles...Human Trafficking in Thailand" raised awareness of a growing social problem confronting our world today. She won first prize from international organization KAYA for a Karen Hill-tribe image of a young boy, Nikon "Colour Your World" division finalist and has won several ribbons at her local camera club. Her images have illustrated articles and the covers of magazines and on-line. She is especially proud to have had a photo printed in the US State Department annual general report on Human Trafficking. Although Sandra is a self-taught photographer, as a life-long learner and educator, she continues to participate in seminars and workshops to develop her craft.
