Sydney 常娇 Walsh is a visual storyteller born in Changsha, China, who grew up in and is currently based in Jupiter, Florida.* She believes photography is a vital medium that removes language barriers and universally personalizes human experiences. She is interested in how culture, history and place affect personal identity throughout time. She is proficient in English and Spanish. Raised by two chefs, a dancer for ten years and a musician for eight years she uses these experiences in her vision as a storyteller. During her free time she enjoys experimenting with analog processes, playing with her four cats and analyzing Taylor Swift's discography.
Previously, she was the Photo and Video Intern at Miami Herald. She recently graduated (May 2022) with a BFA in Photojournalism from Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She was also formerly the Sports Photo Editor at the GW Hatchet, an AAJA Voices Fellow and Communications Intern for Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. In 2020, she attended the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXIII. Her work has been recognized by College Photographer of the Year, National Press Photographers Association, Lenscratch, The Curious Society, Columbia Scholastic Press Association and American Institute of Graphic Arts, among others.
