Phoenix Transect Project

Nadia Sablin

Nadia Sablin was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and immigrated to the United States when she was 12. She received her BFA at Rochester Institute of Tchnology and is now pursuing an MFA degree at ASU. Her work has been exhibited at the the SOHO photo gallery, Chelsea Art Museum, Northwest Center for Photography, and published in Black and White magazine.

I am interested in recording and exploring the human experience, be it that of immigrants, people living in forgotten parts of the world, or middle class Americans experiencing the backlash of this country\'s overextended expansion. The project I photographed within the Phoenix Transect group relates the story of families who lost their homes through the foreclosure crisis.
