American photographer Sandra Wong Geroux has used photography to explore her communities for over twenty-five years.
From a clinic in Haiti for women recovering from post-earthquake amputations, to a fading homestead of native Hawaiian ranchers on the Big Island of Hawaii, to an intimate study of high school football players in the Bronx and Mamaroneck, N.Y., to a study of a local summer camp that promotes independant thinking, to portraits of the everyday lives of family and friends, Geroux’s images reveal an exuberance and reverence for life.
Geroux received her degree in Photojournalism and International Relations from the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University. She started work as a photojournalist for newspapers in Rochester, N.Y., then went on to manage the studio of photographer Mary Ellen Mark and produce radio with The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, for NPR in San Francisco. Geroux currently lives in Larchmont, N.Y., with her husband and her son.
