Cohort 2 | April - June 2015

Sasha Phyars-Burgess, a photographer living and working in the Lehigh Valley who describes  her practice as inclusive, “I don’t treat the people who I photographs as subject or  disassociated objects outside of me. There is always a moment were we must acknowledge  each other. Me, as someone who is takes, and them, as someone who gives, as well as someone  who is allowing something to be taken.” She says of her photograph At the Bus Stop, Allentown “I knew this person for 5 minutes. But we both acknowledged, to an extent, that he wanted to  be photographed in that moment. This consensus is necessary, and besides for my visceral  want to photograph him, I am glad he allowed me to do so and was aware that his image is  important.”
