Amanda Sauer (b. 1977) is an artist using photography to visualize time and reimagine relationships with the natural world. She works in response to place, often over many years, using repetition to invite chance and bear witness to environmental change. Her work is influenced by her previous career in climate change research and policy where she published on environmental topics.
Amanda is a recipient of 2019 - 2023 Artist Fellowships from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and her work is included in the DC ArtBank collection (2018, 2019, 2023). She has exhibited regionally, including most recently as part of the 2022 Fragile Beauty juried grant exhibition at the DC CAH gallery. Her first book To Measure Time was self-published in 2022; it has been purchased by institutions including the Museum of Modern Art library.
Amanda is a professor at Northern Virginia Community College where she teaches darkroom and large format photography. She has a MFA in Photography and Film from Virginia Commonwealth University and a BA in economics from Cornell University. Amanda lives with her family in Washington DC.
