SANDRA WONG GEROUX BIO
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 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 in 1992. 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 a radio series for NPR with The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, in San Francisco. Geroux currently lives in Larchmont, N.Y., with her husband and her son.
Geroux is a recipient of the 2019 ArtsAlive Grant from ArtsWestchester and will have her first solo exhibit at the Westchester Children’s Museum in the Fall. Her work will also be featured in the MODERN FAMILIES exhibit at the ArtsWestchester Gallery in White Plains, in ‘The heART of Co-Op’ at One River Art School in Larchmont and in the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards show in Barcelona.
