Edith High Sanchez’s work has been informed by geographical and emotional contexts. A Midwest childhood combined with international experiences in Asia and Europe, and a California presence since 1984, have all shaped her imagery.
Sanchez received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan, and a Graduate degree in Education from Boston College. Her photography studies include courses at The International Center for Photography, extension courses at New York University, UCSD and the University of London, as well as numerous seminars and travel workshops. In addition to a life long study of photography, Sanchez has had a career in education, health care marketing and public relations.
Sanchez’s work focuses on landscapes, urban cityscapes, portraiture and abstracts as well as documentary work centered on women and children for the organization Save the Children. She works with film cameras and darkroom photography as well as with current digital cameras and computer post production.
Her award winning photographs have been shown in New York, London and San Diego. Her work is in private collections in New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas and Milwaukee.
