Jennifer Sakai is a fine art photographer and educator who resides in Washington, D.C. She received her BFA at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts and her MFA in photography from the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She has taught at the Park School of Communications at Ithaca College and Virginia Commonwealth University.
Professor Sakai's research consists of the exploration and examination of the landscape in the photographic medium. She has two current series: the first "Hillover Road, east-west" is a study of the light, color and surface as shown through the venacular of Eastern Long Island.
Her second series Poston Provenance addresses the topography and emotional connection to the concentration camp where her relatives were held during WWII, and the families eastward migration after the war.
