Sandra Cattaneo Adorno

Sandra Cattaneo Adorno started photographing five years ago, at the age of 60, and has continuously been thrilled by the possibilities of interacting with the world photography has offered her.   

Sandra was commended for the Sony Awards 2016, she was published on the LensCulture website and was exhibited during the American Illustration-American Photography 2017 Awards in New York and the Independent Photographer 2017 show in Berlin.

She was also shortlisted for the first round of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2017 and received the PDN Exposure Award in 2018. Her photos have been exhibited in New York at the first Women Street Photographers exhibition in December 2018, at the Miami Street Photography Festival 2018 and at Miami Photo Fest in 2019, as well as at Street Photo Milano 2019.  

Sandra was selected among the ten finalists of the National Geographic 100 contest in 2019 and was one of the winners of the Portrait of Humanity Award 2019. Her work was projected at the Kaunas Photo Festival in 2018 and it was published on the EyeShot Magazine, the Ageist and the Guardian.

Her first book, The Other Half of the Sky, will be available soon.
