Victoria Sambunaris received her MFA from Yale University in 1999 and is currently a critic at the Yale School of Art. Each year, she structures her life around a photographic journey crossing the American landscape. Her most recent project has been working in South Texas photographing the intersection of geology, industry, and culture encompassing the international boundary and energy industry. She is a recipient of the 2010 Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship and the 2010 Anonymous Was a Woman Award. In 2011, a twelve-year survey of her work was exhibited at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York and most recently at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
