Sara Hylton | Nobody Listened – Episode 70

“I think even in storytelling and making pictures there’s so much noise and it’s so busy and here’s this conflict and this violence and for me it’s just about people, I just want to see them.” Sara Hylton uses portraiture to tell the stories of the oppressed, abused, and the underrepresented. Much of her work focuses on discrimination against women and their resilience in the face of systemic class and gender bias. We talk about how Sara developed this sense of social justice, how she chose photography as her method of communication, and what it takes to gain the trust of those who have every right to be suspicious of others.
