About Sarah-Ji

"The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom. " ~ bell hooks

Sarah-Ji is a queer Korean mama, organizer, and photographer who has been documenting freedom struggles in Chicago since 2010. She is a member of Love & Protecta grassroots organization that supports women and gender non-conforming/non-binary people of color who have been criminalized or harmed by state or interpersonal violence. Sarah intentionally focuses her documentation work on everyday people imagining and and building a world rooted in love and justice, a world where we don't need prisons and police. She hopes that these images of resistance and reimagination will plant seeds in others to join in the work of collective liberation.
