I make art to heal myself and others.
Sunny Strader (b. 1991) is a photographic artist based in both Los Angeles and Illinois.
Sunny makes work that examines the emotional nuances of people who are often overlooked. She was most recently named a winner of the Magenta Flash Forward award and a finalist for the Lucie Book Prize.
What I do:
Long-form storytelling, slow journalism, immersive documentary, portraiture, zines, collage, and (very recently) screenwriting.
I also teach photography to at-risk youth.
