Visura founder Adriana Teresa Letorney interviews Canadian artist Sara Hylton for this new video series highlighting visual storytellers from around the world. Sara's work is focused on the resilience, humanity, and quiet beauty in the lives of her subjects. As a medium format film photographer, Hylton uses her craft as a tool of defiance against the current political, social, and economic reality in which we live.

Sara Hylton has received multiple grants and fellowships from Magnum Foundation, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the Hillman Foundation, the International Women’s Media Foundation, and the International Reporting Project. In 2018, she was awarded a National Magazine Award for her work on missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Hylton’s work has been recognized by the Magenta Foundation, American Photo, the Lucie Foundation, the Alfred Fried Photography Award, Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, PH Museum, and Santa Fe Portrait Awards, among others.

Hylton has worked for National Geographic, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Harper's Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Smithsonian Magazine, Bloomberg News, Vogue Magazine, the Financial Times Magazine, the Globe and Mail, Refinery 29, and Al Jazeera among others. She has been exhibited in both solo and group shows internationally. 

She is currently based around South Asia but will travel anywhere her camera takes her.
