Savannah Dodd is a photographer and anthropologist. Her work in photography is heavily influenced by her background in anthropology, and she often combines the disciplines to produce visual ethnography. She places great importance on process, modes of access, and engagement with the people and places she photographs. Savannah combined her experience in anthropology with her passion for photography in 2017 when she founded the Photography Ethics Centre.
She earned her master's in anthropology and sociology at the Graduate Institute of International Development Studies in Geneva (2015) and her bachelor's in anthropology and religious studies at Washington University in St. Louis (2012). Prior to founding the Centre, she worked in the development sector for NGOs and IGOs in Switzerland, Uganda, and Thailand. Savannah is currently pursuing her PhD in anthropology through a study of ethics in photographic archives at Queen's University Belfast.
