Sahar Coston-Hardy is a fine art and landscape architecture photographer focused on the social structure of race and cultural identity. Integrating portraiture, urban design, and street photography, her work investigates the relationship between place, power, and personhood.  Her recent exhibits include Back to School, which examines the social cost of school closures in her native Philadelphia, and The Im(migrant), a collaborative project intended to build bridges across diverse communities through the lens of history and movement.  She is currently working on a series that combines memoir and portraiture in an extended reflection on gender, gratitude and aging.  A graduate of Tyler School of Art, Sahar’s work has been featured in Landscape Architecture Magazine, The Architect’s Newspaper, and TOPOS Magazine.  After a decade in the private sector, she opened her studio in 2016, where she partners with clients that include some of the nation’s leading landscape architects, designers and planners.
