Stacey Sanner has worked in photography, fiction and non-fiction writing for more than 20 years. As a freelance journalist in the early ’90s, Stacey wrote for the daily, weekly and monthly magazines in Cleveland, OH and later in Los Angeles, CA for Variety. She wrote dozens of concert and record reviews and feature interviews with actors, comedians and musicians ranging from Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails to Jerry Seinfeld when he was starting out as a stand-up comedian.
As a fiction writer, Stacey was accepted to and attended the Breadloaf Writers Conference in Middlebury, Vermont, in 1997.
Selected pieces from her photography were shown in a group exhibition in New York City in March 2005. In 2009, Stacey’s work was accepted to appear as part of a book collection published by the Photo Center NW in Seattle. Her photography includes portraiture, abstracts and B&W street photography, much of it from New York City where she lived for 13 years, and from Erie, PA where she was raised. Her work can be seen at www.staceysannerphotography.com.
In late 2010, she published her first book, Keeping a Blue Light On: A Citizen’s Tribute to the Seattle Police Department. Portraits from the book along with excerpts of the officers’ stories were shown in an exhibit at the Photo Center NW from Nov. 2010 to Jan. 2011.
